Sue Goetz will speak at the Tulsa Garden Center on Monday, July 13.

The phrase “Inspiring Gardeners to Create” has guided Sue Goetz’s life as a garden designer, writer and speaker. Based in Washington State, Sue is a certified professional horticulturist (CPH). She shares, “…a creative gardener…celebrates the garden for all of its uses.” Her personal passion is all about what the garden gives back. She encourages people to make discoveries in their own gardens. And that passion has awarded her gold medals at numerous flower and garden shows. Her home garden has been featured in “Northwest Home and Garden” magazine as well as “Country Gardens” magazine. And she has been highlighted in both “Sunset” and “Fine Gardening” magazines.
Tulsa Herb Society is hosting Sue Goetz on Monday, July 13 at 7 p.m. as their annual educational speaker. Sue will speak about her latest book, “The Herb Lover’s Spa Book” (published in February 2015). She will be sharing her passion for gardening and particularly her love of herbs. “I am an herb lover, but I am also a spa lover. When you put the two together, you have the start of a journey of delight.”  Her book proposes: “It is all about relaxation in your own surroundings and using herbs from your garden to create a pleasurable, deeply beneficial experience.” One of the most beloved herbs – lavender – has shown in research studies that inhaling its essence actually forces a physical response which lowers blood pressure, heart rate and skin temperature.
Sue will share her favorite herbs to plant in your garden and their healing properties. And her book shares 40-plus recipes which will allow any gardener to create a custom spa experience in the comfort of their own home. It outlines wonderful, easy to follow recipes for such items as:  peppermint foot soak, lavender spa salt glow, chamomile eye soothers, scalp tingle mint shampoo, and dusty rose body powder.  The book will be available for sale at the event.
The Tulsa Herb Society (THS) was formed in 1988 by a group of herbal enthusiasts. Its purpose is to foster the appreciation, study, culture, history and use of herbs. THS presents an outstanding speaker each summer at the Tulsa Garden Center, located at 2435 S. Peoria, as an educational event for the community. The event is free and open to the public
