I have a non-herbal question:
I was wondering who on this list has robins during the summer? They are all
over the place here turning over leaves looking for bugs and such. I enjoy our
winter friends and was just wondering who keeps them in the summer?
Another question, this time herbal:
In my chemistry class today I cut several handfuls of rosemary, and the kids and
I hydro-distilled its essential oil. They thought it was cool, and I enjoyed
the wonder they exhibited. I didn't get much oil, just a light sheen on top of
the water in their flasks. I think they got the point though. The room smelled
wonderful. Does anyone know the % by weight of essential oils in some other
plants? My mint is just beginning to poke its head out and I would like to try
this later when I can get a good handful.
