Juniperus communis berries

All about wild juniper   Check out this page for some excellent juniper berry recipes, including a link to Four & Twenty Blackbirds' Junipear Pie.   

Juniper berries are also used in a lot of wellness teas, some of the sold at Tea Rocks in Rocky Mountain House.  I'm quite fond of their Women's Wellness Tea.

Wild Mint

I had never thought to collect seed from wild mint, it's weedy, can be invasive if allowed or in the right conditions, but then I started getting requests for it.  So here it is.  

The cons of wild mint are listed above, the pros are that it makes a wonderful soothing tea, you can use the fresh leaves in so many dishes, adding wild mint leaves to water in the summer is so refreshing, and it does smell divine.

Ocimum tenuiflorum (syn. O. sanctum) Holy Basil or Tulsi

This is one herb that my home will never be without. Wonderful licorice flavor and scent. The flavor and scent are good enough reason to grow this basil, the bonus is the effect of this herb. New Chapter produces this in a gel cap form and one can buy it at any health store or at Planet Organic. "Holy Basil, has for thousands of years been revered as 'Tulsi' in Ayurvedic medicine. 'Tulsi' means 'The Incomparable One', which is the reality of this majestic herb. ........ 'Holy Basil delivers nutrients to the mind necessary for the experience of enlightenment.' If you are experiencing stress in your life, take Holy Basil. I highly recommend it. I've found that the home grown plant delivers the same effects as the pill form. If you need more information I urge you to read up on this incredible herb, or contact me, I can not say enough good about this herb.
