    Add 1/4 tsp of the dried leaves of this plant to 4 tsp dried Bee Balm (Oswego Tea) leaves and brew in 32oz water - add a bit of honey and ice and relax.
     
  2. Beautiful!
    Its virtue as a medical plant was widely known in former days. Hardly anyone takes notice nowadays.

    Cheers

    The old ways are good. Unfortunately, the dose rates are difficult to standardize. The synthetic versions are more easily standardized but generally less effective. It is a shame that herbal medicine is not part of the medical school curiculum in the US. Woliwon

  7. One of the world's most beautiful roadside weeds. I love this plant and have several images of it as well. Nicely done.
