(Garden Myrrh, Sweet Chervil) Herbaceous perennial native to Europe and Asia. The plant exudes the odor of Anise from its ferny leaves, white terminal umbels and deeply grooved, resiny seeds.

Leaf, stem and/or young root may be simmered with other vegetables. The dried herb can be made into a good tea. Traditional uses (TWM): nutritive, carminative, stomachic, blood cleansing.
