About The Magical Herb Garden

The Magical Herb Garden exists in every garden if you look for it. I should state here and now that this site isn’t just about herbs. It’s about pretty much anything gardening. It’s a little bit difficult to separate the basil and thyme from the tomatoes and peppers, at least in my veggie patch! Do you have this experience too?

This site is to bring together people who love herbs, gardens, cooking, and even a few potions and lotions. There is nothing like being able to put together a simple little salve to put on minor scrapes and scratches for your kids.

There’s also nothing like being able to supplement your grocery bill by growing your own salad stuff and having some chives and basil handy instead of paying the grocery store prices for fresh herbs. At the end of a year, it can make a difference to your bank account.

But I think the biggest reward is realizing the effort and time it takes our food to grow, that it’s not always easy being a gardener or farmer, and having respect and admiration for where our food comes from. There is a big sense of accomplishment and delight in harvesting those first radishes and helping your kids say ‘I grew that!!!!’

Being connected to the earth is a very over-done phrase these days, but there is also a lot truth to it too.

I can and will from time to time promote products, books, and courses that I think will help you further your learning and gardening experience. In return, the companies selling these products pay me a small commission. This is called affiliate marketing. This does not change your cost in any way.  Many of these products and sources are also free resources that I share so you can learn more too, with no benefit to me. Consider this my virtual storefront combined with stories! I will promise you here and now that I will never share a product, course, or book that I do not fully believe in.

Always research from reputable sources, and consult with your family physician about treatment and health issues before trying herbal alternatives.

 

ALSO A WORD OF WARNING: Please please please DO NOT go picking and using anything out of your garden, herbs, leaves, flowers, whatever until you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are safe for consumption and what they are to be used for.

More people have died grabbing leaves to ‘make a natural tea’, thinking it romantic and sweet, only to end up extremely sick or even dead in some cases, because what they picked was incredibly toxic and should not ever have been consumed or used for anything other than a bouquet.

I’m not saying this to scare you, but it’s a real issue. There’s a lot of Instagram photos of beautiful dishes and cakes out there decorated with lovely and incredibly poisonous flowers which should never be near food. It’s only a matter of time until someone gets really sick and a big bruhaha ensues. Do your research first. 

With love,The Magical Herb Garden
