  1. Love your theme and look forward to following all your posts. I hadn’t realized there were two types, but now that you’ve mentioned I clearly see I’ve used them both.

    • thank you, and yes for years, I did not pay any attention to this little fact as well, until a friend of mine pointed out the difference. Now I am amazed that I had not noticed. Blessings!

  2. Bay leaf is always there when I select the spices to add to my stews and spaghetti, but I didn’t know it’s healing properties. Thanks for the information.
