Think about the best meal you’ve ever had – it probably contained plenty of herbs and spices to complement the main ingredients. They can be subtle or overt, but these wonderful additions are often the unsung heroes.
Cooking is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to their benefits. We’ll show you how to use them in sun catchers, potpourri, aromatherapy, lip balm, shampoo and more!
In this project, you’ll:
- Increase your knowledge of the different herbs and spices available
- Learn about their traditional and cultural origins
- Learn how you can grow your own either indoors or outdoors
- Make your own food, crafts and products using a variety of herbs and spices
