Once a week or so, depending on how much time is demanded by my duties, I will post a new recipe. It may be a healing recipe, a religious or magickal recipe, or it may be something to entertain your family, friends, and guests with. Whatever it may be, it will include a happy dose of herbs.

When you have your herbal teas each day, save the herbs, even if in a tea bag. Open tea bags and remove the contents. Take the herbs outside and work them into the soil around your garden plants, for a natural fertilizer. This can also be done with your indoor houseplants. Or if you raise chickens or goats or horses (or other livestock), they just love your "used" herbs! Sprinkle them over their feed and watch them go after it. This way, your herbs just keep on giving!
