Hi. I haven't started an herbal garden yet, I'm still doing research.
I was wondering which herbs you can mix and which you cannot. Is there a particular guideline?
I'm assuming anything in the mint family can be mixed without problems?
Could I mix rosemary with bacopa in a tea to help improve cognitive abilities and memory? Or bacopa with ginseng?
Could I mix calendula, plantain, and comfrey together for a healing salve?
And valerian with chamomile, lavender, and california poppy? Sorry, but I'm not drinking a tea that tastes like dirty socks.
Or horebound, rhodiola, and crocus sativus? Maybe not all of those, but still.
I know that sometimes one herb can be more potent, and I don't want to blend things too often anyway, but for certain remedies they should be.
Thanks in advance.
