Apple Pie Spice Uses: Growing ConditionsApple Pie Spice Uses: Growing Conditions

Since this spice is a blend of various herbs, there are many plants that were needed to create this herb wholesale. The essential herbs and spices that are used to create Apple Pie Spice are cinnamon, lemon peel, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. A few of these ingredients can be grown in an herb garden, but many of the spices will become trees. So, most of these spices require more space and effort than other types of herbs. But, we can still discuss how they are grown and harvested.

Apple Pie Spice Uses: Where Do Spices Come From?

First, we have the cinnamon herb, which comes from the bark of the laurel tree. This process is a bit complicated, but it begins by growing the tree for two years. After, the tree is cut down and the following year little shoots will appear. These shoots will have a thin layer of bark on the inside. This bark is collected, dried, and used as the spice we all know and love.

Second, we have lemon peel powder. These lemons grow on trees in warm, full sun conditions. Once the tree is about three years old, it will begin to produce fruit. These fruits are harvested once they are yellow and firm with a slightly glossy appearance. Then, the skin of these fruits will be dried and ground to be used for lemon peel powder.

Next, ginger is a root that can be grown using roots that have visible green “eyes”. These “eyes” will sprout long stems and below the dirt, the root will grow larger. This plant prefers nutrient rich soil that can hold moisture. However, the set up needs to be free draining to prevent over saturating the plant. About eight months after planting, you can dig up the ginger root.

Additionally, cloves are dried flowers that grow on clove trees. These trees prefer a wet, tropical climate and can’t survive below fifty-nine degrees Fahrenheit. These flowers are picked before they have the chance to open. Then, they are sun dried for about five days.

Finally, nutmeg is produced from a nutmeg tree, which creates yellow fruits that are similar to apricots. Inside the fruit are purple/brown seeds that are covered in a red skin. The skin, which is used to make mace, is removed and the seed can be ground into nutmeg.

The Eucalyptus plant species originate in Australia and some of the islands to its north, like the islands of New Guinea and Hawaii. Throughout all these places there a few hundred different species of eucalyptus.  These vary from the kinds we typically see koalas munching on to the beautiful rainbow eucalyptus trees of the Hawaiian Islands. However, both our eucalyptus Essential Oil and eucalyptus Leaf herb is from the eucalyptus globulus species of the eucalyptus family.

While these Eucalyptus plants may be accustomed to conditions in Australia and the northern islands, there are other areas of the world that have similar enough conditions. So, these trees can thrive in these areas as well. While some of the eucalyptus trees can make do with partial shade, most of these trees require full sunlight. Also, they require well draining or dry soils.

Another important aspect of these trees is that they cannot take cold temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit for extended periods of time. So, most gardeners in colder climates will keep their eucalyptus tree in containers to protect them from winter conditions. While these indoor trees won’t grow to be the typical 30 to 180 feet (which will need to be controlled with pruning), they will be a unique house plant that can provide fresh eucalyptus. Just make sure that your plant has the right conditions and you’re good!

Also, the eucalyptus scent is refreshing and clean. So, hair care products are sure to be fantastic! Not only does eucalyptus care for your hair, but it can be used to repel lice!

Some people like to use it for natural cold remedies due to its beneficial properties. These wonderful properties include improving many respiratory conditions, as eucalyptus is effective for simulating both your immune system and respiratory circulation. This can even lead to helping a sore throat feel better and release the pressure in your sinuses as all the congestion caused by mucus begins to be broken up. Further, it has antibacterial properties that are useful for detoxifying your body of microbes and toxins. If you have a cold, then you may notice that this helps to improve your cough.

Also, components of the eucalyptus herb have been found to be useful for reducing seasonal allergies due to its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antimicrobial properties.

Eucalyptus Benefits: Food and BeveragesEucalyptus Benefits: Food and Beverages

Although there are some medicinal uses for eucalyptus, like some cold medicines, ingesting large quantities of this herb is not a good idea. In fact, it is not a great idea to eat eucalyptus just for fun. Many people enjoy the antibacterial properties and the boost it can provide your immune system. But, we can’t eat too much eucalyptus. Eucalyptus leaves are covered in an oil that humans can’t digest well. So, humans cannot use it at too high of a dose internally.

However, Koala bears are perfectly adapted to consume these leaves. They are able to survive on only the leaves of eucalyptus and other gum trees. However, even the baby koalas need some help learning to digest these tough leaves. Until they grow up, they can’t digest the leaves well enough. So, the babies need their koala moms to help them digest. So, these leaves can even be challenging for the professional eucalyptus eaters! If you want to learn more about baby koalas, then take a look at Baby Koala: Facts about a Cute Species by Sydney Close Up where they talk about everything from the newborn to the joey that is ready to leave their mom’s pouch and explore the world.

This wonderful algae is full of all kinds of vitamins and minerals that the body needs to be its best. In fact, some people have been referring to this super food as the “food of the future”. Spirulina has gained this nickname for a few important reasons. These reasons include being fast and easy to grow as well as having high amounts of essential nutrients for the body. These nutrients are key to making this an amazing herb for the entire body. So, we will use this blog to explore some of the uses and benefits of Spirulina as well as share with you how to use Spirulina Powder in your own natural herbal cosmetics.

How to Use Spirulina Powder: Growing ConditionsHow to Use Spirulina Powder: Growing Conditions

Spirulina can be found growing in the lakes and ponds of Africa, Central America and South America. This algae prefers these warm lakes and their alkaline water conditions, around a pH range of 8-11. So, you won’t ever find Spirulina growing sea water. Also, it needs to have an abundance of sunlight and mineral rich water. Both the sun light and minerals are used by Spirulina as food sources. Then, the algae uses these to create all the beneficial properties that make it so loved. Further, Spirulina is able to grow in conditions that many other algae can not. In fact, some dessert populations of Spirulina can survive if their pond evaporates, as they can remain dormant on rocks until the water returns.

Also, you can recreate some of the conditions that Spirulina needs to thrive so you can grow some at home! If you wanted to grow this algae on your own, you just need a few supplies. It is said to be about the same level of maintenance as caring for fish. So, you will need a fish tank, sunlight, a few mineral salts for food, and some simple equipment. If you would like to know some specifics on growing this super food, then take a look at a great resource we found at the end of this blog.

It is thought to have been harvested in Lake Texcoco and made into cakes, as a Spanish conquistador named Hernan Cortez had observed the native people harvesting and consuming it.

Since this crop is nutritious and easy to cultivate, organizations like the United Nations promote its production in developing countries to help alleviate world hunger.

Halloween is a fun tradition that is just full of orange pumpkins, black cats, spooky costumes, and trick-or-treating. But, have you ever thought to question how these Halloween traditions came to be a part of our tradition? Well this holiday came from the ancient festival of Samhain, which is an ancient Celtic tradition that took place on November first. During this celebration the Celtic people would light bonfires and use costumes to ward off ghosts. Later, Pope Gregory III used this same day to honor the saints and incorporated some of these Celtic traditions. Eventually, the night before, or Hallows Eve, is known to be the night of spirits and trickery.
