I'm glad that I have found a topic that seems to interest folks out there! Currently, I am working on the history of mints. After that (per request) I shall be covering the history of thyme!
Of course, if anyone has an herb that they would like to see featured, just let me know! I am always looking for ideas, and I keep finding more tidbits than I even thought I could find! Currently, when I discuss the herbs I look at: cultural uses, magical uses, etymology, stories about the herb, science pertaining to the herb, and medical uses of the herb. If anyone would like me to look into any other aspects of the herb, just let me know!
