Agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria) 2oz/59ml Herbal Extract / Tincture - Maria Treben's Authentic™ Featured Herb
It grows in sunny dry places, on hedge banks, on sides of fields, woods and paths, on wastelands and near ruins. Its small yellow flowers cluster on slender spikes, similar to the Mullein. The whole plant is covered with soft hair, the leaves near the ground are often 10 cm. long and pinnate. Agrimony, which can reach a height of 80 cm, belongs to the same family of plants as Lady's Mantle. The plant is gathered when in flower, from June to August.
The history of this herb, as with many others, goes back a long way and it was known to the Ancient Egyptians. Gargling with this tea clears the voice for singers and public speakers.
