Summer is my busiest time of the year, but also my favorite. This is the view that greeted me this morning on my search for arnica, elderflowers, and St. John's Wort. I get up early and hop on my Mountain Bike with 3 cloth bags and the search is on. All of these herbs are quite beneficial and I use them in my skin care line. I infuse the fresh St John's Wort in organic olive oil and it turns this beautiful red color. I also mix it with the lye to get a reddish orange colored herbal soap.
Have a wonderful summer and don't forget to smell the roses!
