It is no surprise that herbal products are safer for human consumption. But, it is a wonder how little of herbal items occupy our cupboards, bathrooms and kitchen shelves. I discovered this the hard way when my five year old daughter insisted on using my lipstick – not once but multiple times. Despite asking her to refrain from touching things that didn’t belong to her, she would stealthily take the lipstick and apply it in my absence. (Her preening off to my baby sitter was how I found out).
