Medicine by the Children

Aren't they beautiful? These are the 'simples' that my Jr. Herbalists made on Friday. We harvested together: wild oregano, wild mint, cleavers, mugwort, and yarrow. It was mostly up to them to figure out what plant went with what menstrum ... and I must say they did a stellar job!

Indeed. It's so rewarding to watch them learn and discover the magical world of plants! Blessings to you too Yarrow!
