Peppermint is great.

A few leaves in hot water is brill for upset stomachs.

I believe sage is good when used as a mouth wash.

Have a look at James Wong - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Grow-Your-Own-Drugs-Remedies/dp/0007307136 Great book!

Re: Any Ishy Bloggers out there?

Mine is in my signature too.

Mainly crafty stuff, but loads more veggie growing and hedgerow harvesting later in the year.

I have a feeling my new house move might feature quite a lot next year (the money pit that it is)! :shock:

Re: Dry Your Washing Without the Tumble Drier....

Thanks for the tips.

I am moving to a very old house in the next few weeks - no central heating and don't want a tumble dryer, so will use the tips listed :iconbiggrin:

Keep windows open seems to be a top tip!

Re: Christmas Hamper

Things that keep well always go down well after the excesses of Christmas. I usually do a few jars of jam/chutney/jelly, pickled eggs/onions, candied orange peel is always nice especially when dipped in chocolate Lavender bags?
