Blog Love!

Fall is one of the best seasons in my opinion! Leaves turn a different color, the weather is not too hot and not freezing. It's something invigorating about the energy of fall. Not to mention the wonderful holidays that happen in fall. Halloween, with its colorful costumes and spooky tales.
Thanksgiving, with it's sense of loving and family and simply being grateful for the little things in life. The season is just chock full of tons of things to do. Another one of the great things about fall is the flavors that come out. Of course you can eat anything anytime of year, but how appetizing is it to eat a bowl of hot soup in a heat wave?? Not very in my opinion. One flavor that's undeniably autumn is pumpkin!! Pumpkins, although treated as a vegetable, is actually a fruit! And used as tons of things from tasty dishes to decoration during Halloween.
eSutras Organics has a sweet spot for pumpkins, we have our own specialty pumpkin pie spice! As a matt…

eSutras Organics headquarters is located in the windy city of Chicago. And as everyone knows Chicago is notorious for A.) Our avid sports enthusiasts B.) Our white-out winter snow storms and last but certainly not least C.) Our one of a kind pizza.

eSutras offers lots great deals on great items. We love to accommodate all our customers. Any customers, big or small orders, we appreciate and treat you with the best customer service we can provide.

Drop-shipping is a program we offer that has several great benefits. Say you're a small business. Just getting your foot in the door with organic food products and you want to sell lots of different items, plus you want to have enough to fill large orders. The problem that would arise with this is that you have no where to store these item. You're a small business, maybe even run from your own home, and proper storage would be another hassle. That's where eSutras Organics steps in.

Living Healthy Isn't Just about Eating Healthy!

Living a healthy lifestyle isn't just about eating healthy. It's about actually committing to making everything about you in good shape. Having your body fit is important, but having a clear mind and good sociability is just as important to be healthy.
Here at eSutras Organics, we want to help spark a sense of well-being for all parts of lives and one way we do that is advocate social causes. One of the many organizations we love is PAWS. Their commitment to animals has been formidable and inspiring. Several of our employees volunteer at many of the events they throw here in Chicago to help raise money for animal care and awareness.
One of the events we're really passionate about is the annual "Run for their Lives" 8K run 4K walk. Its held in Chicago, Il (where are retail showroom and warehouse is located) and our employees rally to be a part of the action! If you're in Chicago on September 25, 201, and would like to volunteer just a little bi…

Different uses for one product!

Here at eSutras Organics we offer lots of organic and unique cooking oils, but a couple of oils have multiple uses. Take for instance eSutras Organics Coconut Oil. is an edible oil extracted from the kernel of matured coconut harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). The tropical world has relied on it to provide the primary source of fat in the diets of millions of people for generations. It also has various applications in food and medicine. Coconut oil is very heat-stable, which makes it suited to methods of cooking at high temperatures like frying. Because of its stability, it is slow to oxidize and, thus, resistant to rancidity, lasting up to two years due to high saturated fat content.Although, delicious to eat it is highly recommended against the consumption of significant amounts of coconut oil due to its high levels of saturated fat.Coconut oil can be used as a skin moisturizer, helping with dry skin and reduces protein loss when used in hair. …
