    I recently got a pineapple sage plant, a lemon thyme plant, and a lavender.. my question is what can I do with them to make things for me and my chickens? I like the idea of making soap and I know the pineapple sage can be made into tea and it helps with depression and high blood pressure. I’m just really interested in how others use these and how I can incorporate it into my life! Thank you so much. Have a great day!

    Dry the leaves and use them in the nest box.

    That’s what I thought as well! Does that do anything special for them?

    May repel mites.

    My sister in law claims putting dried lavender in her nesting boxes calms the chickens. No idea if it works.
