Happy Herbal Mother's Day!

Okay...for those of you that know me, I'm all about natural healing. It just goes to figure that I love herbs. Herbs for healing, herbs for eating and...

Herbs for Gifting!!!!

This Mother's Day, I decided to give my wonderful mother her own indoor herb garden. Check out this high-style herb garden I put together myself with a few plants, glass containers, gravel, textured wallpaper, twine, and metal tags.

If you want to gift an awesome indoor herb garden like this one - or make one for yourself, follow these easy instructions:

You'll need:

Potting soil
Gravel (for drainage)
Glass containers
Plants (I used basil, rosemary, thyme, and stevia)
Heavy paper (scrapbook paper, handmade paper, or wallpaper)
Tags (for identification)

Step 1)
Put a layer of gravel at the bottom of your glass container.

Step 2)
Plant your herb in the container. Water well.

Step 3)
Wrap your container with your choice of decorative paper. Overlap the edges and secure with a small piece of clear tape.

Step 4)
Write the name of the herb on a pretty tag.

Step 4)
Wrap a length of twine around the glass container three times. Place the end of the twine through the tag and tie in a knot.

Ta-da!!! Beautiful!

Happy Mother's Day!!
