Sage & Lavender

I cleaned out my herb garden bed and gave the sage and lavender (among other things) a much needed trim.  They smell so good together that I made little bundles of the herbs to dry in the sun. Some of the bundles will go into the campfires this summer.  Burned lavender and sage are supposed to be good for shooing away bugs and mosquitoes. 

The rest of the dried herbs will be combined with epsom salt and essential oils to make a relaxing/detoxifying bath salt.

And after a week of clearing out garden beds and shoveling wood chips, a nice hot bath sounds wonderful!
