Drying Herbs

Summer is an excellent time to harvest herbs. With a surplus of wonderful-smelling plants everywhere you look, this season tells of untold pleasures especially for the kitchen witch, green witch, an Earth elemental witch, or any witch who works with nature.

I dry herbs and plants such as thyme, chammomile, angelica, sage, mint, lavender, and red clover for use in smudge sticks or in my apothecary. These plants are easy to come by where I live, and I am learning more about forraging and identifying plant species here.

There are quite a few ways to dry your herbs but I like to have them hang upside down from hooks and tacks in my bedroom.
