March 2007

The first herb workshop took place on March 24. We made some patchouli oil from the rampant plant threatening to take over the lounge at home and looked at what was coming up in the herb beds. Echinaca, comfrey, vervain, nettles, valerian, st john’s wort, masterwort, lemon balm, agrimony, wood betony, motherwort, goats rue, woad, wall germander, heliotrope, mullein rosettes and yarrow were all in evidence. The elder tree was in full leaf as well. It’s always the first tree out. The daffodils, primroses and violets were still in full bloom.

 

We made some nettle and lemon balm simples. It was decided the nettle actually tasted the better of the two! We also put up some nettle vinegar and this was taken home by one of the participants.
