Herbal wreaths have been hallmarks of civilized dwellings ever since the first cavemen hung dried wormwood to ward off evil spirits. Bay Flora herbal wreaths are made by hand, from farmed and foraged plants. Materials used may vary, depending on the time of year and weather.
Each herbal wreath is consequently unique, and that's part of the charm. All Bay Flora cultivated wreath materials are now certified organic, so the culinary wreaths are not only beautiful but an essential pantry ingredient. Herbal wreaths are about 18" diameter unless otherwise stated.
Herbal wreaths may shed slightly in their shipping package. Don't worry, this is normal for wreaths made of natural materials. They're made extra full to account for this. A note about oreganos: Greek oregano is green and imparts traditional oregano flavor to food. Mexican oregano is purple and has a stronger flavor than Greek oregano, so be stingy when cooking with this herb. Can also be used as a substitute for epazote. These wreaths will last many months if protected from heat, light and moisture.
Prices include FREE SHIPPING to continental U.S. locations. You should receive your herbal wreath within 10 days of placing your order. Dried wreaths are shipped UPS ground and fresh wreaths are shipped FedEx express.
