At Sunshine Farm LLC, we do not use any artificial colors. Everything we make is colored with natural ingredients and ground herbs are a common go to colorant.
All of our dried herbs are certified organic and purchased if not grown ourselves here on the farm. We purchase the herbs as dried leaves and then run them through a grinder to make varing degrees of powder. Some will be more roughly chopped and others will be reduced to a fine powder.
Sometimes we will steep the herb, into a tea, before incorporating it into a product. This process not only creates a color, but also lends medicinal properties to the formula. That's a win, win!
