Garden herb bouquets, looped over door knobs, are one of the easiest ways to fill a room with relaxing scent. This method of freshening the home has been practiced for centuries and continues to be revived by a community of like-minded people looking for chemical free and organic alternatives. Herbs that sweeten the air include sweet annie, lavender, lemon balm, thyme, artemisia, woodruff, and many more. Here are photos of my recent herb bouquets to inspire you.
"I would heartily advise all men of means to be stirred up to bend their mindes, and spend a little more time and travell in these delights of herbs and flowers, than they have formerly done, which are not only harmless, but pleasurable in their turn and profitable in their use."
John Parkinson, Theatrum Botanicum (1640)
