God grows the spices. We harvest and dry them. You enjoy their flavor and scent. The Laurel Bay trees seem to be a native here, along with the Chynoweth and Ohlone Native tribes. My great aunt's and grandma used these spices in their cooking. I've heard it told that the Indians used bay as a breath freshener. A very aromatic Sage grows on the hillsides here. We use it in cooking, sachets,  and potpourri. It seems there is a native chamomile growing here. I will be looking at this as time permits. .
