**Giveaway is over, but do sign up for my newsletter so you won’t miss the next one!**
This time I gave away a potential herbal heaven. The winner of the herb seed giveaway won 10 packets of herb seeds to start an awesome herb garden. The seeds are holy basil, Thai basil, calendula, echinacea (purple coneflower), lemon balm, oregano, stevia, thyme and watercress. They are excellent seeds because they are organic and from Botanical Interests, which means they are high quality and non-GMO. I love this company because they offer lots of heirloom and organic seeds, but I also love the seed packets. Each one includes a bit of enlightenment on the seeds inside. For example, on the lemon balm packet is says this:
“The medieval Frankish king, Charlemagne, had lemon balm planted in every monastery garden for its beauty and fragrance. Used by herbalists for insomnia and to soothe upset stomachs. Add to tea, use as a cooking herb to impart lemony flavor, or enjoy its aromatherapeutic qualities in a relaxing bath. A good container variety.”
I love it!
