Dried Herbs

Dried Heal-All, Prunella  vulgaris, Pittsburgh, 2015

Perhaps because of the cooler temps than normal, and all of the rain, we've got a bumper crop of Heal-All this year.  So far I've got two 1-quart jars stuffed with the dried herb, and am working on a smaller jar just to have out in the kitchen.  Though Heal-All is kind of touted as a panacea, I tend to use it as a preventative tea.  We started off drinking a cup of it everyday to keep colds at bay, which it did, all winter long.  Now I drink it everyday because I prefer it to green tea.
Now is prime time for collecting Heal-All.  Get out there and keep yourself healthy!
