The Healer..

I really like these little wild flowers.. it's a 'Selfheal'.. Prunella vulgaris'.... View On Black


HBW..!! thanks for looking.. have a lovely evening..


Info from 'Wiki'


'Self-heal is edible: the young leaves and stems can be eaten raw in salads; the whole plant can be boiled and eaten as a potherb; and the aerial parts of the plant can be powdered and brewed in a cold infusion to make a tasty beverage.


Medicinally, the whole plant is poulticed onto wounds to promote healing. A mouthwash made from an infusion of the whole plant can be used to treat sore throats, thrush and gum infections. Internally, a tea can be used to treat diarrhea and internal bleeding..
