Best gifts for herb lovers

by whitemoss

Do you love herbs and herbal remedies? So do I, and these are the gifts that I would love as a herbal Birthday gift. Pamper your friends with herbal gifts.

Herbs aren't just for the garden and cooking. Herbs are used in a wide range of wonderful gifts that help wellbeing , health and serenity.The use of herbs in gifts goes back centuries, when a posy of sweet smelling herbs was very welcome to take away the less pleasant aroma of ancient drains ( or lack of them) Now you can buy a wide range of herbal gifts that make thoughtful and welcome herbal gifts. There are herb candles, herb soaps, herb bath products, and many more great herbal gifts. Here we point you to a few of the best.

Herbal remedies make welcome gifts

Give the healing power of herbs to someone you love.

The natural healing qualities of herbs are known worldwide, and the remedies that we now call "alternative therapies" have, in fact been used by many societies for hundreds of years.

Lavender has been used since the dawn of civilisation as a soothing herbal balm, and as an antiseptic to ward off germs and plagues. Lavender gifts come in all sorts of formats. I love lavender body lotion to sooth my skin, and lavender room spray for my bedroom. Lavender has the reputation of improving sleep.

Peppermint has invigorating qualities, and makes a wonderful soothing foot lotion- a great gift for a busy mom. I also love peppermint tea after a meal. Peppermint tea aids digestion. Of course you can buy peppermint tablets for your digestion, but peppermint tea smells so good.

Sage has been thought of as helping improve the brain- the use of the word "sage" to mean a wise thinker comes from this.Lemon balm (or melissa to give it it's proper name) has long been grown to make soothing herb teas.Herbal remedies and natural therapies are excellent gifts for busy women. What could be nicer than relaxing with a soothing herbal bath or body rub?

I grow all of these herbs and many more in my herb garden.Herds are so easy to grow. You can find out more about how I grow my own herbs and have fun with growing your own herbs.

Not everyone has access to fresh herbs, or to a herb garden, but you can give the gift of herbs in so many ways today. Here I've selected some of the herb gifts that I would love to receive as a gift anytime. All these gifts can be bought online now-so you can shop from home- so soothing!

For a really great range of herbal skin products have you looked at skinbotanica natural skin care?

They have an excellent selection of organic skincare.

What other herbal gifts can you give to herb fans?

I have lots of other great gift ideas for herb lovers

What would I like for Christmas or my birthday? Well I love herbs, as I think you know by now.

I'd love a great book about herbs. Jekka Mc Vicar's herb books are, in my opinion, the best you can buy. Buy them in book form or for your Kindle.

Bubble bath, shower gels, body butter, hand creams- all of these come scented with my favorite herbs, and make great gifts.

Think about giving herbs for use in the kitchen- herbs in pots, dried herbs, or even an indoor herb garden would make gifts.

Herbal rooms sprays make me relax and smile! (only buy those made with natural herbs, not synthetic sprays)

I'd also love to receive a selection of herbal teas. Buy the best quality you can, and present a selection of herbal teas in a pretty tea caddy that can be reused and looks great on the shelf.

What DON'T  I want that's herb related? I don't want tea towels or aprons, thank you! I don't want something that I think of as work related. Herbal gifts should encourage a sense of welbeing and happiness.

Jekka's herb books- the best gifts.

WhiteMoss, Me too, I love seeing lovage and sorrel growing in the meadow and select parts of my natural garden and yard.
Surrounding myself with as many indoor and outdoor herbs and as many herbal products, such as candles and lotions, also gives me a cottage and property with acceptable levels of pests since few invertebrates relish getting "stinky" reputation among their peers by bringing back herbal smells.

Thanks for your visit. Sorry I took so long to reply!

The wall planter is a great idea. I could use it on the balcony, since my pots get mold if I keep there indoors. (Don't know how come. I never see it anywhere else.)

Thanks for visiting. Glad you liked it.

I cannot agree with you more, we have underestimated the healing power of herbs.

Holistic_Health on 10/15/2011

As an herb lover, I would love any of these as a gift.

Thanks for your comments- glad to have given you some ideas!
