A Guide to Herbs

More about Rosemary:

Origins:
This aromatic plant originated in the Mediterranean area. The upright variety was valued historically for its beneficial properties and is still highly regarded today. In one legend, rosemary is used to waken Sleeping Beauty; in another, fairies take the form of snakes and lie among the rosemary. A popular saying is, 'rosemary for remembrance.'

Donna's Musings

Wisps, puffs and toxic fragrances!

Why is that we feel we must layer our homes and bodies in scents? As studies have shown indoor air now tests to be considerably more toxic than the air outside. Most air freshener products are synthetic manifestations of chemical compounds, as are many fragrant candles. Now we must watch spellbound as they puff their toxins into our homes in the name of cleanliness!!!

What are we trying to cover up? Better yet, get a diffuser and therapeutic grade essential oils and breathe nature's best rather than science's attempt at duplicating the sweet smells of the Earth.
till next time keep breathing!!
