Default Herbs de Provence

Hi All,

I just wanted to share an idea for a good healthy snack. My two budgies are obsessed with Herbs de Provence, basically a dried herb mix containing marjoram, rosemary, oregano, a very tiny bit of lavender. I used to spread it on their veggies but now just keep a container of it in their cage. It's small enough where I don't have to chop it up and it won't spoil since it's dried. Definitely recommend it!

Id like to try this on my Peetys veggies to try to encourage him to eat his greens if its helpful. So its okay to feed this to budgies??

Interesting. I would have never thought about dried spices.

I'm a Pampered Chef consultant Canada and we don't carry it here, but it is available in the states. Here's a link to the ingredients, sodium content, etc... It looks safe to me!

Yes! It's perfectly safe. You can buy it in most grocery stores but we use a lot of it to cook for ourselves so we buy the dried ingredients and make the mix ourselves. Mountainroseherbs.com has good pricing on bulk herbs. This is what I put in mine:
4 oz Summer Savory
4 oz Marjoram
4 oz Rosemary
4 oz Thyme
1 oz Lavender (you can leave out the lavender if you want as a lot of mixes don't have it)
