Sure Cures and Herbal Lore

For colds, drink chamomile or sage tea.



For strength, eat thyme with your meal. For easing sadness, sleep on a pillow stuffed with thyme.



For staying young, smell rosemary frequently. ;)


For attracting money, carry basil in your pockets.


For indigestion, chew parsley.

My Gran would tell us to study with a vase of rosemary next to us as it would help us remember in the exam.

Great, Lisa! From now on, I'll fill my pockets with basil, instead of cooking it on the "sugo" ( tomato sauce)for the spaghettis!lol

In order never to be short of money, we pick the first honeysuckle and put it in our wallet. Smells good too :)
I also use thyme for colds, since it stimulates the immune system.
I just love herbs!

Lavender keeps the fleas away! And is the best thing for a kitchen burn. It stops the burning process immediately and you are left with less of a scar and less pain. Lavender should be in every kitchen for this reason alone!! And always plant rosemary at your front gate for protection!
