It's fall and time for fall projects. I love to find other ways to use my herbs. Recycling and upcycling is one of my hobbies. I have taken old jars of scented candles, paraffin, cedar branches, cinnamon sticks, dehydrated oranges, lemons, limes, sweet annie, pine cones, rosemary and pumpkin spice coffee beans and have made fire starters.
I have read about some folks using the smudging herbs in fire starters for their fragrance.
They have also claimed that some of the herbs clears or cleans the space and possibly gets rid of germs and bacteria in the air. Athough it has been sage that was the herb used for this. Add your dried sage to a few of these for the cold and flu season.
I think that this would make a lovely gift to share with a friend or make for yourself. They are good for campfires as well as for a fireplace. It was a fun project. I will make many more of these.
I have packaged these by wrapping them in brown paper and stuffing it in a brown cardboard cup holders a friend gave me. Tying a jute string and dehydrated orange peel and a tag, complete the packaging.
I hope you enjoyed the post.
Be well, jonnie dee
