Buy a Dram, Save a Farm

December 5th, 2008

On November 21, I wrote about the Buy a Dram Save a Farm program to help save the Crosby Mint Farm and encouraged you all to buy some mint oil from them to help save the farm. I ordered some peppermint and spearmint oil and I just received it. I must say it smells fantastic.

I read through the brochure they sent along with that describes the medicinal uses for mint oils and I’ll be using these for sure! Last week I e-mailed them to ask a questions about my order and they said that they have been swamped with orders and are so thankful for everyone putting out the word. So if you’re still looking for a few Christmas gifts, maybe a dram or two of mint oil would be great for stockings, spa gifts, baking baskets, or with an aromatherapy kit. They also sell mint teas and mint soil rejuvenator. If you would like to order go to Get Mint and help save a farm.

Garden use:
Their brochure says to get rid of moles: douse a cotton ball with mint oil and place it in a mole hole. I’ll be trying this in the spring, I have moles that moved into one of my raised beds – ugh.
