For the past several years- we have had several small herb gardens around the house outside....and as you can see they are well established. These pictures were taken April 2005- and every thing is nice and green- however too cold at night to cut...But this year- things have changed!

herbgardenattonys.jpg
This is our new garden at a friend's house out in the country....tilled by hubby and planted by me....and did I ever get sun burnt doing it! It's 3 times the size of our vegetable garden at the house in town and we have put in a lot of perennials! Right now- it looks rather bare compared to our established gardens- but just wait....it will catch up!

OILS AND HERB WARNINGS

If you are epileptic avoid these oils   Rosemary, sage, bitter fennel, hyssop   Photo Toxic oils (meaning it increases the skins ability to tan and can cause sun burn) Mandarin, Tangerine, Orange, Patchouli, lemon, lime, grapefruit. Bergamot A few of the TOXIC oils-Rue, mugwort, basil, pennyroyal, thyme, Do not use when PREGNANT WARNING! -Bitter Fennel, Hyssop, Myrrh, marjoram, avoid using pennyroyal, this is not the complete list! All because something is natural does NOT mean it is safe.  . BEFORE GIVING ANY HERB TO CHILDREN consult a Dr., as with all types of medicine or herbal remedies consult a Dr. if you are pregnant or nursing

 
I got a request by a friend who is not used to oils or herbs to include this on my web page. I can also give advice on how to use an oil and wear to apply it most effectively if you send me an e-mail. Most people are: ok I got this oil- now what do I do with it?  That's why I have included these paragraphs on the herbs. I am more used to dealing with people who are famaliar with oils and herbs and how to use them....so please ask any questions....they are free and don't mean that I expect you to purchase something! I'd rather lose a sale than a customer!

Don't be surprised to find unusual items like belladonna, clary sage, horehound, feverfew and tansy....among other items on this page.....We prefer customers over the age of 18...
