What materials did you use? I was lucky to find some very special varieties of herbs at my local garden center: lemon thyme, pimpinella, chocolate mint, strawberry mint, Artemisia abrotanum ("coca-cola-shrub"), salsola, water pepper, meadowsweet, common rue, and pineapple sage.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have some of these herbs in your garden, try smelling the individual herbs with your eyes closed. It's not at all easy to identify each smell, but it's a great sensory experience!

They all sound like they smell amazing! How do they smell as a group?

They certainly do :-)) Altogether, they smell fruity and mildly sweet, as the lemon thyme, strawberry mint, pineapple sage and cola shrub are the most fragrant.
