Prunella vulgaris Heal-All, Heart-of-the-Earth, Self Heal. Creeping herbaceous perennial, native to Europe. In the garden or among the grasses on the lawn, a floral focal point or a surprising splash of color that gladdens the heart. The most useful of remedies for treating open sores of the oral mucosa. Anti-herpes. The entire plant is active, but the flowers are most useful. Pick at full flowering glory and dry in the shade, then set aside for making tea.
We've found that the tea is an excellent treatment for herpes lesions, drying them and killing the virus, clearing the sore very quickly, alleviating pain and assuaging the tissues with a gentle mucilage.
- Flowers purple from 6 inches to 18 inches, depending on how much compost is used and how much competition is experienced from grasses.
