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 contents are free of pesticides and chemical dyes, 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 Mexican oregano: the Latin name of this herb is Lippia graveolens and has a slightly stronger flavor than the traditional Greek oregano. Mexican oregano 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 5-10 days of placing your order.
