Come on in!

The Rosemary House is festive and full this holiday season. Won't you join us on this guided tour through the shop: as you enter, our teas and tea accessories are just inside the front door. There is a lot to look at as we are crammed full wall to wall and floor to ceiling with herbal delights! Many other culinary delights await you in the front room including our famous Roastmary, dips, spreads, salad dressings, pickle mix, soup blends, vinegars, chutneys, salsas and many more! Our segue to the second room is this charming little fairy corner. Tucked in what was once a small closet under a stairwell, this delightful spot includes fairy doors, books on fairies, fairy figurines for the house and the garden. This is a favorite nook and cranny for all ages to peruse.
The second room of the shop features incense, gift items and many herbal spa gifts such as soaps, bath products, air fresheners, pot pourri, sleep pillows, carpet stuff, soy candles and much more.
Of course our specialty is that we have over 400 dried herbs everything from parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme to valerian, damiana, scullcap, lemon grass, ginseng, coltsfoot, and on and on goes the list. From A (anise, allspice) to Z (Zebrovka), the herbs are tucked in gallon jars, mason jars, and old lard cans all throughout the shop. Over the years we've tried organizing by category: culinary, fragrance, medicinal etc but there is too much cross over in uses for the herbs, so we tried organizing alphabetically but a lard can with allspice, next to the mason jar with alkanet didn't make sense space-wise. So now we have a file box we refer to to see were the herb is stored. We hope you enjoyed this little tour of our herb shop. We hope you can visit us in person too!
