Herb Bundles for the Fireplace



Herb Bundles for the Fireplace

Now that the cooler weather is here you will have more fires going on in your fireplace or even your outdoor camp fire pit. This tip for using dried bundles of herb stems and such is a great idea. Not only does it fragrant your home, but it also adds a bit of magic to your space. I especially love Lavender.

Tip:
Through Summer and Autumn when you harvest & dry bunches of herbs from your garden – jar up the leaves but also save the stems! Lavender,Sage, Lemon Verbena, Bay, Oregano – the whole lot. Then tie them in bundles with raffia or ribbon and keep in a basket next to the fireplace. They make wonderful, fragrant fire starters.
