We knew that is a healthy herb so because we loved to go anyway to a trip with our girls and our dog ,cat … Was wonderfull . And here in New Zealand found out that it is considered a weed and so hard to have it in our garden . I can t find a plant … ! So we have to buy it !

It doesn’t flower for very long just about 1 month at the height of summer so I make tincture from the leaves and flowers and use it to bathe cuts or wounds. I’ve posted another blog on happyzine showing how to make a tincture. And I include the tincture in many of my balms and creams. You can make a simple ointment using beeswax,olive oil and herbal tinctures.On my website there is a video showing how to make a balm. kindest regards

So can you just grab a handful of flowers and leaves and seep in hot water and drink?? Are there any other ways you can use this plant?? Cheers

After reading all the valuable usages, I could definitely use some flowers/leaves for a tea, especially winter blues and digestive catarrh and insomnia. I’m giving it a go, thanks for the tips.

If only a few more people could see the benefits of this wonderful plant as opposed to un natural products that have long term detrimental issues. Keep growing your beautiful flower as it is doing its job without even being consumed.
