    Valuable in my home


    I a concoction every year from this for my guys who like sugar. They gargle for sore throats and sugar bothering their teeth. Have a toothache? This is the safe relief you are looking for. All I do is soak it in Vodka for a few weeks, drain and there you go. I add lemon balm to one jar for Lemon balm is the only herb I have come across that is not recommended for those who have thyroid problems. Easy to grow, very different and so useful!
