The holidays are the perfect time to share your love of herbs with your friends and family! I’ve been making herbal homemade holiday gifts since I was a little girl. I have a fond memory of my dad helping me spell out words for holiday cards that I would send along with the gifts. Decades later, I still treasure making special gifts for my loved ones; the only difference is they are always herbal! (And I can spell a lot more words now.)
Herbal gifts are also fun to receive!
It’s true, sometimes people are cautious about trying strange herbal potions, but rarely does someone turn down nutmeg-infused eggnog or delicious chocolate cake.
Going beyond yummy treats, herbs for the bath or skin care are a luxurious way to offer gifts to pamper your loved ones. I get requests for Evergreen Body Butter every year since I started making it! One of my newest favorite recipes is the Herbal Bath Bombs. I make large batches of this so I have plenty to gift and plenty for myself.
Gifts you prepare yourself are often more meaningful than anything you can simply buy at the store. By taking the time to craft herbal treats and gifts, wrap them up beautifully, and share them with love, you can create something memorable and priceless.
May these herbal gift recipes inspire you for many years to come!
