5 Easy Ways to Use Herbs in Everyday Life

Hello!

Today I’m going to teach you some easy ways to start incorporating herbs into your busy everyday life. I know the prospect can seem quite daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! Here are five ways to give it a try.

  1. Add them to your salads Our family eats a lot of salads, and we love adding some fresh herbs for some flavor and medicinal benefits.
  2. Put some essential oils into your lotion If you don’t want to make your own lotion just yet, simply buy a natural, unscented lotion and add some essential oils to it. For an 8 oz bottle, 40 drops of essential oil is a good amount.
  3. Make some tea Starting your collection of herbal teas is a great way to get some herbs into your day. Your local grocery store might have the brand we like to use.
  4. Have a smoothie I usually have a smoothie in the morning, and adding herbal tea instead of water is a fun way to get some herbs in there.
  5. Make your own salad dressing My mom is one of the best when it comes to making salad dressing! She usually puts in a combination of fresh herbs, water, oil, salt and pepper.

I hope you try some of these! It’s a lot of fun, and does not have to be time consuming. For my fellow students out there, making a cup of tea before starting your school only takes a couple of minutes, and when your brain is getting tired, putting on a bit of lotion with some stimulating essential oils is a great pick-me-up! And a salad with homemade salad dressing is a nutritious lunch option.  Have fun with it!

God bless,

Grace
