"Herbs and edible flowers have wonderful benefits far beyond their culinary or medicinal uses, as author Debbie Wolfe shows us in her new book, Crafting with Herbs. She walks the reader through expertly photographed step-by-step instructions to make visually gorgeous wreaths and centerpieces, and aromatic face scrubs and hair rinses. We learn how to make beautiful bouquet garni, confetti cones, and smudge sticks—all of which capitalize on the aromatic and visual beauty of the various herbs. The projects are relatable and functional while celebrating the many uses for herbs beyond flavoring a sauce. —Lisa Steele, author of Fresh Eggs Daily and Gardening with Chickens
