Or, find a gift basket full of Herbal Surrender candles and lotions, teas or other fun local products. These items and more are on sale now at the Ohio Herb Education Center, located in the heart of Olde Gahanna.
Garden in a Bag
Start an inside herb garden beginning in the new year with a Garden in a Bag. Choose from a variety of popular culinary herbs, add water and watch your garden grow! When the winter skies are gloomy, this is a great way to add some color to any kitchen. Imagine getting the taste of fresh herbs in middle of winter!
Soups & Teas
When the weather outside is frightful, a bowl of hot soup or a hot cup of tea warms the soul. At the Ohio Herb Center, you will find a variety of packaged dry-ingredient soups, from enchilada to wedding soup. This variety of flavors will satisfy the foodie in your life.
The Herb Center also carries a variety of teas. You’ll find various black, green and herbal teas to warm up cold hands on a wintery morning.
Inspired by Gahanna’s Geroux Gardens, Herbal Surrender is a calming blend of Lavender and Sage scents, with a hint of Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Star Anise. The lotions, hand soap and bath bombs are handmade by Gahanna’s own Honey Grove Botanicals.
Select from a variety of pre-made, ready to go baskets! It’s really that easy. You’ll find small stocking stuffers including tea and local honey, as well as larger baskets with culinary spices and mortar and pestles.
Select items are 10-20 percent off. (Imagine how many impressions you can make with that!)
The Ohio Herb Education Center is located at 110 Mill St., Gahanna, OH, across from Creekside Plaza. Stop by anytime through December 21 … or on December 24 between 12-4pm for your last minute gifts! (The Herb Center will be closed December 22-23, and December 25-January 2. 2014.)
