Crystal Spirit Woman - I have checked and have your answer: You need to cut the herb before it flowers, that is the right time to cut it.

well, sometime you do use the flowers so it depends what you want to do. For flowers and leaves - you should never boil these but steep them in hot water for 20 minutes and keep covered so any oils don't evaporate. Don't collect your herbs when it has rained but wait for the sun to dry them to prevent them from molding later. Take only what you need and never more than 25% of the plant's growth, attune with the energies of the plant and thank the plant by leaving something in return for it, and lastly look for the herbs by their Latin names.

I have just read that, for instance, marigold is good in salads - the flowers and the leaves, so I'm wondering myself would you want to eat fresh flowers instead of dried? Not sure myself on that. Also then I wonder about rose hips (I just asked a friend the other day what are they - she said it's what's inside the rose after it's done opening up - it's the center- and then some recipes call for rose petals - I would imagine you let those dry if your are making a sachet. If I am wrong, anyone can please correct me.
For drying, I like to get a rubber band or large twisty and tie them on the ends of the stem and hang them upside down to air dry.:)

thank you all for coming here and your comments and welcome. Feel free to add here your recipes or ideas and I will when I can - I am still looking for my Apothecary book which is hiding from me. So frustrating looking for something you can't find. When the house is empty I'm going to try and dowse that book out of its hiding spot. Can you tell I am not organized.
