"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut
