Ear infection help

Got an ear infection?  I do.  Still taking antibiotics for it but they don't help much for a day or so so what should you do till they kick in?  Use oil's of course.

What kind of oil's?  Well Basil is one of them.  But it is important to use this right. NEVER EVER put oil's into your ear. 

Well now that that important bit of information out of the way on to how you do use it. 

Take a cotton ball and add 2-3 drops of basil to it and hold it too your infected ear and rub it along the outside.  The vapors are what is going to do the work here.  Repeat this every 2-3 hours.

Herb Garden 2015

Irish Gardens is finally in PA.  We aren't up and running yet but maybe next year.  This year is all about the family and getting some stock plants.  So what was my first plant purchase?  Herbs of course.  I love herbs.  With all the smells, colors, and uses they have whats not to love. 

In the pot pictured above is Lemon Balm, Chocolate Mint, and Tri-color Sage.  A word of caution not a mix I would recommend to a novice.  Why?  Well Lemon Balm and Chocolate Mint are both in the mint family and grow fast and can spread so the Sage if not properly kept in check will get over shadowed.  But of all the herbs that were pot ready at the local greenhouse these are my favorite. 

Need reasons to get these herbs? Well as the season moves on I will be posting ways to use these and more herbs.  But to start how about some lemon tea?  Or a chocolate mint mojito?

So what will your first purchase of the 2015 gardening season be?
