Phase 2 hCG Herb Blends and Marinades

I prepare the blends below and store in recycled herb bottles. There is an amazing herb company called Gourmet Garden. They dry the herbs half way so that they retain a fresh-picked flavor but it keeps in the fridge for a month. I make my mixes with it as often possible. Here is the link to their main site, although I shop for mine at the local QFC.
