Christiane (our print designer) and I love to cook, grow plants, and find inspiration in the freshness of herbs - so we thought it would be fun to create a herbaceous print! We both always plant rosemary, basil, thyme, oregano and sage. They make even the simplest cooking much more delicious, and are also beautiful, low-maintenance plants for even beginner gardeners.

We thought this print would be the perfect gift for the avid cooks and aspiring chefs in your life. I love imagining people waking up and adding fresh herbs as they cook breakfast, adorned in their Herb Garden pjs or robe. Last spring we saw such a positive response to our Flamenco in our Dandelion combination, we knew we wanted to bring in something bold and bright like this yellow color to brighten up your day.

Herbs to Improve Your Sleep

Not just for cooking! Did you know herbs can be a super powerful way to amp up your nighttime routine? Below are some tips on how to incorporate herbs for a more restful night. 

1. Valerian Root is one of the top herbs people use to reduce insomnia. 

2. Chamomile tea is a sure way to relax after a long day. 

3. Lavender. Simply smelling lavender oil shortly before sleep has been shown to improve sleep quality. Try it in a diffuser or just on a cotton ball. 

4. Gaia Herbs has such a great assortment of herb-based sleep remedies: 
a) SleepThru
b) Sleep and Relax Herbal Tea
c) Sleep Gummies
d) Valerian Root
