Hey, you Herbal Professionals!  The one with the lab coat. Not only you – the one with green leaves in your hand too… all the herbs of the world thank you from the bottom of their roots. It may be because you left the roots alone this year… but no, they think you will be leaving them alone altogether during the festive season. Ooohh, but what do you do to celebrate during the festive season? Eat, drink or chop a Christmas tree…? All from plants again! And then, you still think about those plants that you haven’t analysed before. Well, they know you’ll do a lot more of that next year and simply wish you a prosperous analysis year of 2015. But hey, you! Leave the roots alone if they have to thank you again!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
