    Default Do these spices hinder supply?

    I was wondering if anyone knew if these spices hinder supply? Ginger (fresh), cardamom (pod form), turmeric (ground), coriander (fresh ground), cinnamon (stick), clove (whole), black pepper (whole), red pepper (ground naga jholoki, I think...), curry leaf. Any ideas on chicken bouillon cubes? I'm aware that peppermint and star anise are supply killers and I now avoid them.

    Do you mean for cooking with? I doubt the amount you'd get from using them for seasoning could affect your supply.

    • Blue Cohosh
    • Buckthorn Bark and Berry
    • Cascara Sagrada bark
    • Coltsfoot leaf
    • Comfrey
    • Extract of Senna leaf, peppermint and caraway oil
    • Germander
    • Ginseng
    • Goldenseal
    • Gordolobo yerba tea
    • Indian snakeroot
    • Jin Bu Huan
    • Kava Kava
    • Licorice
    • Male fern
    • Margosa Oil
    • Mate tea
    • Mistletoe

    In the quantities used for cooking, or even above that, none of those spices should pose any problem whatsoever. If they did, there'd be no-one living in Asia!
