  DIY Indoor Herb Garden

Items needed:

-Container(s) {recycled tin cans, glasses, jars, etc are perfect}

-Potting Soil (Autumn makes her own with peat moss/coco coir & perlite)

-Assortment of herb plants/seeds (basil, rosemary, thyme, mint, chives, etc)

-Labels

Directions:

1. Fill container(s) with some potting soil.

2. Take plants out of their nursery pots and put in container. Surround the plants with soil, making sure to pack the soil down. If using seeds, fill container mostly full with soil and plant at the depth according to the package.

3. Give it a good water and watch your herbs grow! Continue to water seeds daily until they develop into adult plants (the moister the soil the better germination rate). Then water when the soil is dry.

4. Label your container(s) by writing on a piece of paper and clip it on with a mini clothes pin. ***Take it a step further like Autumn did by collecting fallen tree branches, stripping one end at an angle, writing the names of the herbs on them, and sticking them in the soil. This really makes it look extra fancy.

5. When you are ready for some tasty herbs snip off the amount that you want with a pair of clean scissors.

6. Wash the herbs and throw them into your next meal.

"These aromatherapy inhalers are amazing! After just a minute or two my ailment is gone! I like to keep myself stocked up on some of the varieties to give away to friends and family who are having problems. I had a nephew over a few months ago who kept coughing non-stop. I gave him a breathe inhaler, and after just a few minutes he stopped coughing. He took it home with him and continued to use it. I love the power of natural products!"
