Glad you’re having fun! 🙂
The Rosemary description is a little tricky as it’s not quite clear what you mean with the curtains and letting in sunshine. Does it make the mother feel her home is brighter because her son is livelier? Does her son feel the curtains in his mind are opened a little, and sunshine warms his soul? You can use the metaphor, but try to make the reference a little clearer.
Also, if your metaphor sounds more exciting than the quote from John Gerard (which it probably does), then you want to swap the sentences around – first mention John Gerard, and then add your own metaphor.
I like the Camomile addition – it makes it immediately clear what the effect is. I can almost feel myself relaxing when reading about the warm bubble bath. Be careful with multiple adjectives before a noun. I’d go for either a quiet bubble bath or a warm bubble bath. A quiet, warm bubble bath becomes a bit of a mouthful.
You could certainly make this post more vivid by adding metaphors for each of the herbs. Just make sure each metaphor sounds different while maintaining the same theme.
Feel free to post if you’d like some more feedback!
