Hello to all of my Blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy!
Several weeks ago, I was approached by a member of the Hospital Auxilliary Board where I work. She knows that I love herbs and have made herbal soaps so she asked me to speak at the May Board Meeting/Luncheon. I was so shocked and flattered that they asked me! Of course I said yes!! Then I started doubting myself and started to worry about the speaking engagement. Well, that day finally rolled around and I had my program all planned out, got started and promptly did NOT use anything I had prepared. I had brought a basket of potted herbs and just talked about my first exposure to herbs then described the uses for the potted herbs that I brought. I broke off pieces of each and passed them around guess what---they really seemed to enjoy it. I gave out a recipe for my Herbal Hot toddy Tea(it is amazing when you have a cold). I had purchased chamomile and peppermint tea bags from San Francisco Herb Co. to pass out and they really liked that! Then I drew names for the basket of herbs that I brought. Who doesn’t like freebies? All in all, I really enjoyed myself and I felt it was a big success-I hope to get other speaking engagements in the future!
I honor of my first speaking engagement, I will be giving away 20 chamomile and 20 peppermint tea bags, soap, and several more items from Herb and Botanicals to one lucky blogger next Friday May 24th.
