Not only are herbs delicious in foods and teas, but they also have healing properties when ingested, taken in as an infusion, or used as a salve for the skin. As a part of our seed order this weekend, we researched the healing power of herbs. We already use herbs in many of our products at the Farm, including Lavender Hand Salve and Rosemary Salt Scrub. We grow the herbs, harvest and dry them to use in our products. We are considering expanding our herb garden to include herbs for teas and additional herbs for our product line. We are so excited to be able to grow Organic Herbs from seed and seedlings and take the herbs through the entire process of harvesting, drying and the crafting of products and teas. We will be offering more blog posts about the process of herb cultivation and the healing properties of the herbs in our products.
Guess what herb we will be cultivating and using next? Sage. This beautiful picture of sage is from the BBC Food website http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/sage . They discuss cooking with sage, we will be discussing using sage in many different ways, including food, bath and beauty products and even teas! Stay tuned for more blogs about our herbs!
