A few days ago, we brewed up for our cousins our usual rose hip mint tea from last fall's foraging adventures. We then realized the rose hips and mint both came from their yard (with permission)! Now their kids couldn't get enough of these teas. It was an awesome realization to find we can give our cousins the gift of their own herbs.
This morning my husband proclaimed, "That's funny you have nature days. Nature days for you all are like a priest having prayer days!" Now you'll find us dreaming up herbal popsicles and making lists of herbs we'd love to plant, such as licorice and marshmallow. With so many uses for herbs, it's hard not to be excited about salves, compresses, lozenges, steams, baths, and teas. Yup, we're hooked and we're loving it!
What are your favorite herbs and how do you use them?
