We talk a lot about all the wonderful benefits of herbs – the medicinal benefits, the endless cooking advantages, even for use in arts and crafts projects. But don’t overlook how just plain BEAUTIFUL an herb garden can be. Let’s take a closer look at a couple of them…
ROSEMARY: Rosemary is as fragrant as it is pretty. Native to the Mediterranean area, it has fragrant needle-type leaves with sweet flowers in white, pink, purple and blue. It is a favorite herb for cooking and a good source of essential vitamins like B6 plus iron and calcium too. And for centuries folks have lauded its medicinal/health benefits+!
SAGE: With its soft grayish leaves and woody stems, sage has long been a favorite healing herb! Its flowers bloom in blue and purplish hues and throughout history, Sage has been used for everything+ from treating asthma through steam inhalation, to reducing muscle tension due to an anti-spasm property, to reducing menopausal hot flashes.
