Our Six Favorite Amazon Items for Essential Oil DIY Projects

  1. For body balms, this one is great. Feels like an expensive face cream container, and the glass almost looks as if it’s black.

2. This is a great essential oil diffuser for larger rooms, or for homes with an open layout. It runs for longer than 8 hours.

3. These are wonderful spray bottles, and are great to make your own hand sanitizer, room spray, spray-before-you-go, or perfume.

4. Blue roller balls look as if they’ve come from an apothecary, and the metal roller ball gives it a high-end feel.

5. Perfect for lip balm, and I love the screw-top lid.

6. Instead of using dryer sheets that are full of chemicals, I use these wool dryer balls. Two drops of an essential oil and you’re good to go.

3 easy ways to add fresh herbs to your dinners this week

Fresh herbs always announce the beginning of Spring for us here at Corrales Herb Farm. We have chives, oregano, and lemon balm all coming up out of the warming earth. Today we’d like to give you three easy ways to add fresh herbs to your dinner table this week.

  • Add a sprig of fresh rosemary to a simple cheese platter. Add French bread and dinner is ready! 
  • Chop some fresh chives into your yogurt for a refreshing snack.
  • Canned or boxed tomato soup becomes a gourmet appetizer with fresh chopped basil. TIP: Use scissors to easily chop leafy herbs like basil.

Loving the lovage

Lovage plant

Our lovage plant that’s under our fig tree comes back every year, and we just saw the plant sprouting for 2019 yesterday. It will grow to this nice size, and we can use it in Virgin Bloody Mary’s, in stews and in gazpacho.

Corrales Herb Farm

Bienvenue chez nous ! Here at our little farm in New Mexico, we aim to provide friends, family, and local chefs with favorite and forgotten herbs. Chives on your yogurt, cream of sorrel soup, lovage in your beef stew, a lavender sachet on your dashboard.
