Mimi's Scented Garden

If you are looking for a way to introduce your children or grandchildren to the joys of aromatics, my friend Sara Holmes has written just the book.

A delightful way to introduce children to the scented aromatics, herbs and flowers, and the oils they give us.

Four children visit their Mimi's aromatic garden, learning the names, aromas and tastes of their chosen herbs.  Sara introduces several simple crafts which elementary school aged children should be able to create with some adult involvement.

(Remember, if the project involves using the essential oils, it is essential that an adult supervise!)

This is a delightful little book that can start a child on a lifelong journey, learning about the world of healing plants.

Available from Sara Holmes at Botanical Healing Arts.
