Aromatherapy Herb Garden.

One of the aspects we enjoy about growing herbs is the scent.
Aroma is very evocative, and aromatherapy is growing in importance today.
This garden has been designed not to create one’s own oils, which is a complex process, but to have those aromas around that help our everyday lives, and to make an attractive garden, as the plants all have useful qualities apart from their aroma.
The sweet marjoram, basil, thyme, fennel and rosemary are excellent culinary herbs. The chamomile and lemon balm make good herbal teas help one relax.
We have placed paving stones in the garden to make access to the plants easier.
However, when this garden becomes established, the stones will barely show.
We included a list of the herbs in this garden with the properties of the essential oil.
