Herbal Home Spa
-- Herbal baths combine the therapeutic effects of water and the particular actions of herbs.
-- The best herbs to use:
Lemon Balm (calming and stress relief), Rosemary (stress relief), Lemon Grass (cleansing), Chamomile (moisturizing) Lavender (tension relief), mint (uplifting) Rose scented geranium (anti-depressant)
-- Mint can be added to salads, vegetables and fruity desserts, sorbets and jellies.
-- It is delicious in cool and hot drinks, as well as in salad dressings, dips and vinegars.
-- Garden mint is the most popular, but varieties like apple, pineapple and ginger all have a distinctive flavour and fragrance.
Sweet On Basil
-- Basil is most associated with Italian and Thai cooking and goes particularly well with tomatoes.
-- It is also the main ingredient of pesto.
A good way to preserve extra basil is to blend the basil, olive oil and pine/almond nuts and freeze it, omitting the parmesan cheese which is added later.
