BEAUTIFUL HERB

Sometimes, medicinal herbs
can be beautiful . . .

like YARROW!

An ancient go-to herb for centuries.

The flowers and leaves can be used
as a tonic, for fevers and flu.
Applied topically, for rashes
and relief of skin itching.
In tea, for sore throats
and calming the nerves.

And rubbed on the skin
for a natural mosquito repellant.

And if that weren't enough . . .

a colorful beauty in the garden.
