Incorporate Basic Herbs Into Your Life


| May/June 2000

  • Try mixing herbs into your flower or vegetable garden.



  • Cardamom is an aromatic herb that’s often added to bitters formulas.

Herbal salves are an excellent remedy for cuts, scrapes, and minor burns. They’re also very easy to make at home. This recipe makes about 3 ounces of salve. You can find 1-ounce glass salve jars with lids at herb and health-food stores.

Salve Recipe: Use oils and beeswax to create a unique salve recipe.

Grow the Easiest Culinary Herbs:

A great place for the neophyte gardener to begin is with a culinary herb garden, and this is the perfect time of year to start one. These herbs can be grown in pots indoors or out, in window boxes, or mixed in your garden with your vegetables and flowers. For some delicious new tastes, try adding fresh basil and oregano to spaghetti sauce, or fresh mint to fruit salad—you won’t believe the taste difference between fresh and dried herbs.
