However, lemons have many other attributes that have gone unrecognized for far too long. That sunny bright yellow orb in the grocery produce aisle or if you are lucky hanging from the tree in your yard is a powerhouse! When it comes to the lemon that old adage great things come in small packages if apt! Read more “Do lemons have legs?”

The values in intricacies of SpikenardA brownie point for the first one to know what spikenard is! Ahhh the history of names and changes, for those of us in modern times Spikenard is none other than Lavender. That sweet but not too sweet aromatic herb that many either love or hate.

The history of Lavender goes back some 2500 years and was even found in the Tomb of King Tut, believe it or not the aroma still faintly lingered. Read more “The values in intricacies of Spikenard”

Discovering or Rediscovering HerbsOur relationship with the herb reaches back thousands of years and at one time herbs were an essential part of life.

As time passed however we began to forget the many versatile uses of herbs and then we thought we could improve upon Mother Nature with manufactured copies, chemicals and synthetic knock offs. And many totally forgot that the herb existed, not realizing that what they were now using were copies of the originals and not natural at all. Read more “Discovering or Rediscovering Herbs!”
