Hello everyone Smile

Do you know if there are law regulations for selling dried herbs like lavender, camomile or catnip that I grow in my garden. If they are where can I find them?

Thank you
Have a great day

Maja

If they are not for human consumption ( such as the lavender, for instance ) I can't see why there should be any regulations. As for camomile....where do you plan to sell it ? If it's in a farmer's market, ask the organisers what the general guidelines for foodstuffs are.
I imagine there may be controls if you are actually purporting to be a herbalist but that's a different thing altogether.

Sorry to contradict but lavender is being sold for consumption. Lavender scones and cakes are quite popular.

Good point, Margo...I was imagining those bundles of lavender you can buy for decorative/scent purposes. I've never used lavender in cooking !

When we lived in UK we used to go to a lovely lavender farm in Norfolk. They had the usual gift shop heavily overpriced as usual. However their cafe wasn't and there was a lot of stuff in there that contained lavender, the scones especially.

There are lots of delicious sounding recipes for lavender ice cream on the net. I think I'll have a go when my lavender flowers. I made a wonderful gooseberry and elderflower icecream a few weeks ago, based on a Hugh F-W recipe.
