Herbs and Herbalists

It's a constant battle: medicine versus herbs. This is how Marguerite got interested in herbs.

Using scented products won’t, in and of itself, turn a man into a metrosexual, make him start getting manicures and using tons of product on his hair. However, if men could ever fully appreciate the effect their soapy, outdoorsy scent has on those of us who care for them, they’d start doing a little shopping on their own. Luckily, the market is beginning to reflect some of the cultural changes that have men thinking a bit more seriously about their grooming, and many excellent herbal product lines are now available for men. If you don’t have the time or inclination to make your own body-care products for men, here are product recommendations you might enjoy.
