Merry Christmas to me, Merry Christmas to me...

Ok, I know its not really Christmas but when I get these.....
Its like Christmas to me!!!
Its my herbs!! Yippeeee!
I've been out of several things for many months now and it was soooo exciting to find my box on the porch this morning!

I think I've showed you before how I take the labels from those thick plastic bags and place them on jars to store the ones that I will be using.
The jars are just easier to get in and out of than those bags!
Wanna know what I ordered?
I got more Passionflower-Oh, how I love this herb!!! It makes for really sweet dreams!
I also got Butcher's Broom, Ginkgo, Peppermint, Alfalfa, my beloved Rose Hips, and a new thing, Kelp! (I've got to figure out some places to smuggle that in!)

Here's some of the others that I already had;
Olive Leaves, Yarrow, Hops, Oatstraw, Horsetail, and some hidden Bilberry. (and a teeny bit of Ginseng)
Now, what's frugal about the herbs?
Well, they are cheaper than pop! And you can use your choice of sweeteners- like honey, cane sugar, etc. Which will add to your health (rather than take away :-).

AND, these are nourishing your health, which is very frugal in the long run! How frugal? Well, there is one herb that I know of that helps with irregular heart beat and you can get a 3 month supply for under ten dollars- one of the drugs prescribed for that is $100 a month and on top of that, it has some very unfavorable side effects!
(you will find a link at the bottom of my page for the Bulk Herb Store where I order from and there is also a large amount of information on their site about herbs and remedies)

And if any of you are feeling chatty, I would love to hear about herbs that you've found useful!

Bulk Herbs, same as you girls!

I love them!!!
And they always get my order to me within 2 to 3 days (since I'm in TN)!

BTW Tammy, I was soooo bummed out when I couldn't order when you were running the special a few weeks back! - I could have ordered more! :-)
