Yes, Yes, I am interrested!  I haven't done a tremendous amount of research 
on gruit, but I have been interrested in trying them out.  To that end, I am 
growing some rosemary in my back yard, and I have found an on-line source for 
yarrow.  The other typical ingredient (as I've read) was bog myrtle.  I

toxic.  I'd love to dig into recipies for it.

Post away!!
