Made by Hand: Organic Herb Fire Starters


What do you do with your dried herbs and flowers?  Make fragrant organic fire starters. 

Bundle strongly-scented herbs such as rosemary, sage, lavender, mint and thyme, with dried flower blossoms such as hydrangeas for color, then tie with a natural twine that will burn cleanly.  The dried herbs and flowers will help kindling catch quickly.

Add a homemade tag and they make a wonderful, lovely, organic, recycled gift for the summer through the fall season.  Perfect for twilight gatherings!   Enjoy!


  1. What a unique idea! Cannot wait until a brisk fall evening to try this out!

    1. Thank you, if you wait to light your fire until after the guests arrive, everyone comments on how lovely they look laying across the firewood.


We would love to hear from you. Please leave a comment here.
