Agrimony - Herbal Tea

Agrimony Tea

Agrimony, commonly known as Church Steeple due to its tall flowering stalk is not used as often today as it was traditionally in herbal medicine over the years.

This herb can be found commonly growing in the woods and fields of the United States, Canada and Europe and can be spotted by its 1 – 2 foot stalks that bloom with yellow flowers.

If you find them late in the season it is possibly due to the burs clinging to your clothing. Once the flowers have bloomed they are replaced with burrs. Ahh... now we know what that plant is!

The flowers and leaves of the plant have a slight smell of lemons, both pleasant to the sight and smell. This common herb can be harvested from the wild (known as organic wildcrafted) in bundles and hung upside down to dry for use in herbal teas, lotions and washes.
