I'm cutting spearmint to-morrow for tasty stomach-calming infusion, and lemon balm for mosquito/tick repellent tincture since I don't have lemongrass in this year. I cut them right before they flower, to get the most out of them. They both grow right back, and I'll be able to cut again in autumn.

Well I'm going to be experimenting with jewelweed today as I have a bit of poison ivy. Probably will be an infusion but need to get some beeswax and experiment with making a salve or balm as I know I'll likely have a bit of rash from now until fall.
