    You may also one day want to consider reviewing and adding to your list the beneficial herb Calamus. What you have on your page so far is of very good use and you’ve done a great job on writing about all the various uses of the herbs you’ve reviewed.

  2. Hello,
    Nice picture.

  3. Loving this website, just need more info and recipes for a praticing witch.

    The infusing link goes to your blog about the pledge. Great article and I still want the info about infusions.

    • I think, because the link was broken, it went back to the main page… Sorry about that, I’ve not updates some of the index-pages lately, and when changes get made, sometimes the links end up being old. I think I’ve fixed it…but I’ll take another look at it later. We are headed out for breakfast right now!

Share your thoughts...I always try to respond, though sometimes I get distracted!! If that's the case, I apologize in advance...
