Chamomile-well woman medicine
Today's herb of choice is chamomile. Chamomile is listed under stage one, nourishing herbs. I don't drink tea of any description but if I need to then I would much sooner have the herbs I have grown made up instead of a box from the supermarket. So on the other side of my little path opposite the comfrey and raspberries I've build a tiny little box for the chamomile. It also sits next to my bottle brick herb garden.
Some of the other stage one herbs I already have are- borage, comfrey, fennel, lemon balm, nettles, raspberry, St.Johns Wort and violets.
I have bought fenugreek seeds but I think I'll have to have a much bigger flower bed for them. I'll have to read up on how big it grows. That can be on tomorrow's to-do-list.
