Like perfume, herbs are revered for their seductive aromas, scrumptious flavors, and surprisingly powerful medicinal properties when sprayed on wrists at department stores. Bask in herbal delights with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of herbs and spices at The Rosemary House in downtown Mechanicsburg. Billed as one of the oldest herb shops in the country, The Rosemary House was founded in 1968 and specializes in all things herbal, from culinary blends to medicinal extracts. Founder Bertha Reppert passed her herbal expertise and knack for Harry S. Truman impersonations to her daughter Susanna, who now runs The Rosemary House with her husband, a trained herbalist. Roastmary, a best-selling original blend ($4), packs a flavor punch to add to bread, potatoes, or pasta, while essential lavender oil ($5.25) can scare away sleep demons. Buyers can also pick up a certified organic herbal extract ($8.75/oz.) like wild yam root or peppermint for a natural health aid (not evaluated by the FDA).
This Groupon is for in-store use only.
