These mixtures typically contain savory, fennel, basil, thyme, and lavender leaves and other herbs, though lavender was not used in traditional southern French cooking, but please don't leave it out...the result of using it is fantastic.

According to the CDC Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents; about 151,000 people below the age of 20 years have diabetes. When diabetes strikes during childhood, it is routinely assumed to be type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes. However, in the last 2 decades, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes) has been reported among U.S. children and adolescents with increasing frequency.
