Hawthorn is found mostly in Europe, eastern Asia and eastern North America and its use has been growing since the 1800's. In Britain, Hawthorn was an important part of many May festivals and was known as 'May flower'. In France, Hawthorn goes by the name "l'epine noble" (a noble thorn) from the belief that the crown of thorns worn by Christ was made of its branches. Hawthorn is a member of the Rose family: rosaceae. It's a small, compact shrub-tree with white bark, hardwood, and sharp thorns. It produces small berries called "haws" which look like tiny apples or Rose Hips.
Celebration Herbals is the offshoot of their family business, Organic Connections. It is run by two parents, two children, and some dedicated helpers. Every day they work hard to bring you the best herbal products they can. By 1997, they had been in the organic herb and spice trade as a wholesale distributor for over 10 years. One of the ways they thought they could make a difference was to make great quality herbal products that would be effective, great tasting, organic, and an inexpensive alternative to prescription drugs. Their very first product was "C" Blend Tea, followed by a few Psyllium Fiber products, and then their extensive line of Herbal Teas. In the past two years, they've created a very extensive line of Bottled Herbs and Spices. Their organic passion... 25 years ago, people did not want organic. 15 years ago it was only for the conscientious forerunners of society. 5 years ago, it seemed like everyone started taking notice.
