Hello my lovely coven! We have decided that we want to consolidate our motorhome and fifth wheel RV into a single motorhome so that we can easily travel. This being said, I’m going to have to downsize a bunch of stuff.
One thing I need to pare down is my herbal stash. I’m looking at being able to have ~10 quart mason jars. Excluding cooking herbs (basil, oregano, thyme, cinnamon, garlic, etc), what would your 10 must-haves be?
I am new to herbs but my mom is an herbalist. Some of the ones my mom talked about the most- that I can remember- : lavender, arnica, calendula, milk thistle, tea tree essential oil, aloe Vera plant, rosemary, thyme, oregano, (but these are covered in kitchen spices)
Ohhhh a lot of the herbs and plants I like to use double for use in the kitchen, but if I had to look past the most popular culinary herbs, I’d probably choose:
That being said, favorite herbs will vary from one witch to another depending on what they like to use/cast with- I’d recommend looking back at your most recent spells and reviewing what herbs you’ve been using most often
Good luck with consolidating and downsizing- hope it all goes well for you, Amaris!
So definitely lavender and calendula! I also will be keeping my EO collection as I’ve been working to build it up.
I have mint, rosemary, kitchen sage, and sweet basil plants that I am for sure keeping. I have a knock-out red rose bush but I think the summer heat might have killed it. It shed its leaves early this year so I don’t know if it will come back in the spring or not. I have also tried to grow lavender a couple of times but keep overwatering it, lol. I may try again in the spring.
Very thought full of you…I am so new to the herbal & crystal arena that anything you have or have leftover I would be grateful to have and start my collection. I must admit I copied what the Mistress_of_Herbs would use:
Letting her know that I am using her list as I don’t even know where to begin.
Goodmorning. I hope you do not mind I copied your list for Amaris_Bane of the herbs you use. I wasn’t sure what the top 10 of important herbs are…and you being the Mistress of Herbs sounded like a great place to start.
@Mistress_Of_Herbs, @Medea , and whoever else is interested, I would love to give the ones I’m not going to keep a new home! Let me make a list of what I have, decide what I’m keeping, and I’ll post an update here. I’ll try to determine how much I have of each as well so if multiple people want one, I can maybe split it.
