Welcome to the first (monthly) Herbal Blog Party!
It seems fitting that we should have our first party on this Blue Moon, with a Forgotten Herbs theme. I’m hoping the Blog Party can be part of a grass roots “remembering” about herbs in Western culture. I’ve certainly learned a lot from this month’s entries.
Oh, and I wrote about Melilot, my favorite plant of the moment.
UPDATE: Kiva posted some wonderful insights on Evening Primrose for her “official” contribution to the blog party, though we all know she writes constantly about forgotten herbs.
Next month’s party: Soothing recipes for irritated skin.
It’s summertime (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), and that means sunburn and bug bites and cuts and scrapes. What are your favorite recipes for soothing injured and irritated skin? (Salves, liniments, lotions, oils, poultices, washes, etc.)
Post your recipe to your blog sometime during the month of June, and email me a link.
On June 30, I’ll post the party here!
(If you’re interested in hosting a blog party, or have ideas for themes, let me know!)
