This is quickly becoming one of my favorite herbs! It is a native plant that attracts many pollinators, and it has a lovely sweet and licorice-y taste. The strong aromatics make it a really amazing herb to support digestion. It also can act as an expectorant, helping to clear mucus from the lungs and airways and relieve congestion.
Like many others, my favorite way to use this herbs is in tea, either by itself or used with other herbs. It is equally tasty made as a hot or cold infusion. At UGArden we put it in our Blissful Belly Tea and our Tulsi Chai Tea.
