Yesterday I went out to the patio and clipped a number of chocolate mint stems to bring indoors. I put the cut stems into bottles filled with water. The scent is incredible!
I just love herbs. I’ve been studying them since my early thirties, when I was in an herb club with other women. We met once per month. Each of us alternately brought a dish to enjoy that included an herb.
My favorite herbs for scent is chocolate mint, pineapple sage, lemon verbena and lemon balm. I also like spearmint.
Maybe I’ll bring in lemon balm next. Or I could cut stems from various herbs and make an arrangement. Maybe add some blooms to the mix.
Enjoy the aromatic cut herbs anywhere in your home. They’d also be nice in your bathroom. Or in your guest room if guests are coming.
Placing peppermint essential oil in a diffuser helps relieve anxiety and stress. Alternately, you can also add peppermint, lavender and geranium essential oils to a warm bath to help relieve stiffness while it’s absorbed through the skin.
Also try aromatherapy by using a diffuser with essential oils.
