The Herb Lover’s Spa Book
“Every time we bring ourselves to a place of relaxation the memory preserves it”. What a wonderful thought from “The Herb Lover’s Spa Book” by Sue Goetz.
Sue Goetz is well known in the South Sound for her garden design and herb talks. It’s pretty obvious that her passion for gardening in general and herbs in particular runs deep. In “The Herb Lovers Spa Book” she posits that we can all have and deserve a special “me” space… at home. Sue gives detailed direction about how to accomplish this by asking four questions: “What will I do in the space? When will I use it most? What additions are needed to meet my needs? What would preclude my enjoyment in the space?” Once you answer these questions you have begun to create a “me” space. Then come the herbs. Sue gives you the scaled down list of the best herbs to grow for the spa recipes that follow. The ideas are straightforward and the message is clear, “Take care of yourself”. 171 pages, St. Lynn’s Press, $18.95
