Online Herbalism Courses for all levels

The holiday season is a great way to introduce herbs to your family and friends. Here is my top 5 picks for herbal holidays gifts.

1. Herbal Holiday Decorations

Decoration

Simple, cost effective and oh so pretty. These can be made with anything from calendula  or lavender flowers to star anise or allspice. Check out my blog on a herbal holidays season here.

2. Bay Rum Aftershave

I made this aftershave for all the men in my life one Christmas and it as a huge success. So much so that I started selling it at the farmers market. Check out LearningHerb’s recipe here.

3. Healing Lip Balm

At some point almost everyone on your gift giving list will suffer from dried, cracked and/or chapped lips. Check out Wellness Mama’s great post here.

4. Ginger Cinnamon Syrup

This was another holiday hit in my family. Delicious in tea, especially chai, and even tastier on pancakes or waffles on Christmas morning! Check out my recipe here.

5. Homemade Vanilla Bean, Almond and Lemon Extracts
