Kitchen Witch: “H” and “I”

As you all know I’m trying my best to get back into the swing of things. It hasn’t been easy to say the least, but its been a step in the right direction. As a lot of you might remember, I originally had a series regarding herbs and their magical properties, well, I’m starting that back up again. I hope you enjoy and let me know in the comments if I left anything out.
