Sharing our Autumn hours, and an abundance of tea at Wall Flower Studio!

Herbal TeaAutumn is the time to cosy up with a warm cup of herbal tea! The seasons have shifted gears, Karen has harvested all kinds of herbs from her garden! Wall Flower Studio’s herbal tea line is growing! The harvest was just in time too, as it’s now sweater weather here in Ontario.

It’s time to enjoy the harvest, the changing colour of leaves, and to settle ourselves into the cooler weather that fall offers.

As noted we have an abundance of herbal, green and chai tea available! (See our partial list below). Karen is happy to create custom blends for her customers, too!  Visit the shop to see all of the creative and soothing tea combinations with which one can indulge.

Can’t get to Minden?… Shop online  via our Etsy store, too. 🙂

wall-flower-studio-shop-hours-fall-2016Our hours have changed, like the seasons do, so we’re sharing the October and November open times at the shop. We are now closed on Tuesday & Sunday.

This of course doesn’t take into account special events or workshops, and our December holiday hours will expand.

Check back for more on that in late November, and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, too. 🙂

Thank you!

Scented kindling bundles – An herbal fire starter DIY for campfires and cold nights

Herbal Kindling bundles

Kindling bundles in the shop

Herbal fire starters are the perfect way to start the fireplace or wood stove  roaring on those cold winter nights. I think they’re a splendid way to incorporate the summer garden into a winter holiday tradition! Use them to light those bonfires and campfires too, as the burning herbs help repel pesky mosquitoes and other insects. Personally, I like to tie one on a bottle of wine, as they make a great addition to any hostess gift!

All kinds of herbs and dried plant material can be incorporated into these bundles. I add many herbs including Sage, Oregano, Thyme, Lavender, Marjoram, Oregano, Mint, Lemon balm Tansy, Savory, Artemisia, boxwood, Statice flowers, Echinacea, Yarrow, black-eyed Susan seed heads, and even dried licorice plant stems from my hanging baskets.

Simply layer different dried herbs together and tie them with raffia. They can also be braided and hung on the wall, waiting to be used.

I especially like using Lemon Thyme in my bundles. It smells so nice! Again, simply dry it flat on an old tray. Same thing goes for Sage, but hanging it up to air dry works well, too.

When it’s time to clean up the garden, take a good look at what can be used from your own garden to create these easy DIY bundles, and save yourself taking it to the landfill!

Happy bundling!
