Homemade Herbal Valentine’s Ideas

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we wanted to give you a few ideas of easy, homemade gifts to make involving herbs.

Homemade Herbal Valentine's Day Ideas

  • Herbal bath “tea”- Combine herbs such as rose petals, lavender, chamomile, linden, dandelion, nettle, and sage into a reusable muslin bag.  These make a delightful addition in a relaxing bath.  You can even add in some Epsom or Himalayan salts to further enhance the bath.

  • Create a unique tea blend for your sweetheart.

Tea-Time  A quick web search will yield hundreds of DIY herbal tea blends from soothing to energizing, even some aphrodisiac blends!

  • Give them an indoor herb garden.

  • Make an herbal fairy garden.VXG2OH5NTM                             These are beautiful little indoor/outdoor decorative gardens and many herbs can be incorporated both for decoration and to be used fresh in cooking.

  • Chocolate is traditionally viewed as both romantic and an aphrodisiac.  Make a homemade hot chocolate mix with fair trade organic cocoa, some organic sugar (coconut sugar or sucanat are good options for those avoiding white sugar), and add in a pinch of herbs (lavender, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, mint or maca are yummy ideas!)

  • Create an herb infused massage oil or a massage oil blend with essential oils.

  • Make some homemade marshmallows using real marshmallow root and any other herbs of your choice.  Try this recipe from Keeper of the Home for pink marshmallows and replace the water with marshmallow root tea (place 1T marshmallow root in 1.5 cups room temperature or cold water for an hour or up to 12 hours).

  • Make some homemade fondue to dip those yummy marshmallows in!

  • Give flowers with herbs mixed in!  Many fresh herbs make a beautiful and fragrant addition to a flower bouquet.
