  • Make Your Own Herbal Salt

How to Make Herbal Salt Blends

  Making your own herbal salt offers a wonderful way to add herbs to every meal with just a sprinkle. It can also help you cut down on the amount of salt you use to season your meals, adding the benefit of a flavor, medicinal, or mineral boost, depending on the herbs you choose. Green with plant power, I like to keep my herbal salt in one of these beautiful salt jars on the counter next to my rainbow peppercorns for a fun burst of color in the kitchen.   With such a variety of gorgeous salts and herbs to formulate with, these blends can be as inventive as your creativity can stretch. I've included a great basic recipe to follow below, as well as a list of other possibilities to consider for your special mixture. Feel free to use powdered […]

Summer Recipe Sale: 25% off Soothing Sun Spray

  It's time for the next recipe in our Summer Sale of 2015! When the power of the sun stings your skin, you'll want to reach for cooling astringents first. The herbs in this recipe are great at drawing out the heat before using an oil or cream. Since oil acts as a protective barrier on the surface of your skin, it can actually hold in the heat that you want to cool. This is why using tannic astringents is an important first step! You can even keep it refrigerated for an extra refreshing sensation. Ready to make some of your own? For the next two weeks only, you can stock up on select sizes of organic Spring Green Tea, Cleavers, Lavandin Hydrosol, and Aloe Vera Gel at 25% off!
