I am on the same page with you. I love being in the kitchen and cooking with all of the herbs and spices that are available to you. I am an Herbalist in practice's myself, in so I am learning a wonderful new level to cooking that has always been there.
Working with the herbs not just for taste but for the healing properties, the joy and happiness or just the calming effects that just being in the kitchen can bring, has been a great help for me on my path.
Thanks for all of the wonderful tips .
your very welcome if you want to add your own little tips please do even if some people know them others might not for example i dont egg wash my apple pies and place cinnammon and sugar over the tops to make it crispy
Thank you for this interesting post draga. For healing and protection, I use garlic, cinnamon, ginger, and onion. Cinnimon also has a warmth to it so I use it for social spells. Sage, basil, oregano, parsley, and rosemary seem applicible to cleansing and banishing negative influences from their aroma and taste.
