Make a salt scrub.
Herbs have tons of health benefits and they smell wonderful! Dry herbs like lavender, rosemary and sage to incorporate into a salt scrub. Just combine one cup of sea salt with a few tablespoons of dried herbs, a half cup of coconut or olive oil and a spoonful of raw honey.
Make your own tisane.
Harvest your herbs to make herbal tea. We especially love using basil and mint to make a refreshing wellness boosting herb tea. Make sure to use boiling water and steep for at least 10 minutes. Hang herbs to dry and then store in a dry and dark place for up to 1 year!
