I will be making wedding shower soap favours and the bride would like a sprig of fresh herb on the packaging. What would last?

The only thing I can come up with is sprigs of rosemary, those smells delishious, or stems with (dried?) lavender, if you can get a hold of that.

Do you mean last as far as scent or a fresh herb wilting and drying out?

I think that Thyme is a very pretty herb sprig and Lemon Thyme smells wonderful.

As far as lasting goes, a freshly cut herb will smell for a long time. Even after drying out.

I, too, would go with either thyme or rosemary.

I meant as a fresh herb wilting and drying out. I am steering towards thyme or rosemary for the looks. Thanks!

I agree with using a Rosemary Sprig...much sturdier and will last longer.

Yep, if it has to last more than a couple of days, go with rosemary.

I love rosemary. That, thyme and a little bit of lavender would be nice, I think.

Thank you for taking the time to give your opinion. I didn't end up using a fresh or dry herb. In the end, I felt it would have been too much (time, money) for this occasion.
