In My Herb Basket

It's pouring buckets here so I thought I would write a little post about what's been going into my harvest basket in the past week.

Roses, roses, roses and more roses!  So beautiful in every shape, size and color.  I even enjoyed a fresh rose petal bath on the weekend - so decadent!!  They smell heavenly in the dehydrator and they are still just as beautiful in their shrivelled form!

I will be adding them to tea blends, epsom salts, milk baths, oils and lotions throughout the coming year so it is nice to replenish my harvest.

Be sure to collect them away from pollution and traffic and don't forget to add a few petals to your next salad!  Yes!  They are edible!
