 Behold the wonders of Mallow!

This "weed" grows everywhere!  Common mallow or cheese weed can be found along road sides, next to flower boxes, in flower boxes, along driveways. 

I am dealing with GERD Gastroesophageal reflux disease. Things have been  little tense lately and my body is reacting to it. 

My neighbor stopped by today and was asking me about the giant mallow I have growing near my garden. He sparked my memory and I decided to make a tea to ease my tummy.  I used equal parts of mallow, mint and basil. 

The mallow is a mucilage plant meaning it will coat and sooth.  Mallow is also great for thickening soups and stews. 

Mint has anti inflammatory properties.

Basil can protect against ulcers. 

This combo soothed me very quickly. 

So simple, so good. All these plants have vitamins and other uses as well. We have what we need, it's all about research and learning about the gifts that grow in our own back yards!

Have a great week!!!
