Tucked down a narrow street just off of the Marketplace sits a tiny little herb and tea shop mark with nothing more than a simple sign. Edge of the Woods often has a sandwich sign out front advertising seasonal herbal blends and sales.

Inside is a nice airy open space with a long counter to the right, and a small seating area to the left.

Behind the counter is shelves upon shelves of fresh and dried herbs and teas ready for sale.

Manning the counter is often this lovely lady, Lylah Greenbriar or her niece, Calena. ( Either is more than happy to create custom blends on the spot, offer advice - all consultations are complementary!

Midwife Services

Calena is available to assist with all stages of family planning, from those who wish to conceive, those who don't, already expecting mothers, and more.

[size=9]OOC- Work in progress! The shop is currently open (and has been open for some years, but quite small/quiet).

Lylah is an NPC, a fairly friendly if rather no-nonsense woman.

The shop offers all sorts of herbal remedies and teas. I am obviously,
 and shamelessly stealing the tea menu from an absolutely lovely tea shop Tea with Tracy and will eventually come up with an herb list.

Feel free to use this shop for your own purposes.[/size]

Lilac is a calming flower with a gentle scent that reminds people of spring gardens. The blooms range from a deep purple to white and make a lovely addition to any table. But did you know that lilacs have a range of medicinal uses?

Oil of lilac can be used to treat rashes, sunburn, minor cuts and scrapes, and other skin ailments. It can be added to soaps, lotions, and other beauty products, or used as an aromatherapy agent for depression and anxiety.

Edge of the Wood is offering a range of lilac products including:

Bath bombs

As well as straight oil and oil diluted for topical use.

We are also offering lilac and vanilla tea, lilac honey, and lilac jelly!

[size=18]Yule Special- Juniper[/size]

Source (

Have you ever tasted berries that aren’t berries — berries that are actually used as a spice? Juniper berries traditionally have been used to “detoxify” the body and promote healthy digestion and skin health, among many other things.

Don't be fooled by these! They may share a resemblance with berries you might find on the breakfast table. Juniper berries are actually the female cones of the juniper plant. Instead, they are often used as a bitter spice, and are a common flavoring ingredient in gin.

Juniper berries have a wide range of uses including treating skin conditions, aiding digestion, and aid in restful sleep. As an aromatherapy oil, juniper can help relieve anxiety, ease hangover symptoms. As a topical it can relieve sore muscles and arthritis.

Edge of the Wood is offering a full compliment of products of this perfect spice for the yuletide and winter!

The tea bar is selling a special blend of juniper and citrus, as well a marinade/spice mixes that go great with pork, lamb, and even game birds!
