Whole Family Herbs is a mini Guide in the Shop that I co-authored with herbalist Courtney Irwin of The Secret Life of Herbs. Within the 40+ pages Courtney and I share how to sow, grow and harvest over fifteen herbs that especially support and nourish children.
Last week on a very hot and humid day I whipped up one my favourite & very simple recipes from the Guide – Sweet Chamomile Popsicles. The honey gives a lovely earthy sweetness to them and the chamomile is cooling and calming for the hot and bothered moments that seem to come some late summer afternoons. This is the first year I have grown chamomile and I am head over heels in love with these tiny flowers. We’ve been harvesting them daily for a few weeks now and I think I almost have enough chamomile tea to last the whole winter!
