Perhaps the best - and probably most enjoyable - way to bring herbs into your life is to incorporate them into your food and drinks. Give these blends a try and see how they enhance both your cooking and your well-being.
Green Guardian Seasoning Blend
The green taste of summer in a jar. Built around dill, parsley, and lemon thyme, plus a complement of other herbs, seeds, and a touch of mineral-rich salt, it's a delicious, bright-tasting accompaniment to chicken, rice, white fish, scrambled eggs, and grilled vegetables, among other things. This blend is high in antioxidants, iron, magnesium, iodine, and various beneficial compounds (e.g. rosmarinol), helping to keep our system strong in the face of environmental stressors.

Faerie Grove Seasoning Blend
This blend of healthful herbs and spices is an easy way to liven up yogurt, toast, baked goods, fruits, and many other "sweet" dishes. The venerable hawthorn is well known as a faerie tree, providing a haven to the hidden people, especially when growing near oak and ash. Its berries have long been hailed as a tonic for the heart, both physically and emotionally, while both they and rose hips contain high levels of the antioxidant vitamin C. Cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar, while ginger, allspice, and cardamom calm and facilitate digestion.
2 oz. jar - $7
To the classic combination of cinnamon, clove, and allspice, I've added a bit of orange peel and elderberry (to support the immune system during the cold months, as well as attacking any viruses directly). Put a few spoonfuls into the muslin bag, drop it in a pot of wine or cider, and heat gently for a warming treat on a cold evening.. Seasonal.
