This is one of my favorite herbs to use. It is also an excellent companion plant in the gardens as well as a favorite for our cats. This self sowing annual is good host for benificial insects and keeps mosquitoes at bay in our gardens. It makes a good insect repellant.
Dried, it is used as a stimulant for cats as well as an excellent tea to help you sleep. I heard about a folk remedy as a help for colic in infants from a woman from the southern mountains, but I have not tried it for that personally.

All of our seed offerings were grown here. We have been seed savers for 20 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds . The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. Remember we hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order. I go every other day so I also have time to garden.
