We eat the blooms in plates of mixed greens and use glycerin to draw out the mending characteristics of blossoms and leaf buds.

Shepherd’s handbag, Hirtentäschel, Capselle (Capsella bursa-pastoris) leaves are superb in servings of mixed greens. At the point when it blossoms, I utilize the entire new plant to make vinegar and vodka tinctures, catching bioflavonoids for sometime in the future. (A portion is 25-50 drops multiple times every day.)

Ocean buckthorn, Sanddorn, Argousier (Hippophae rhamnoides) leaves are wealthy in numerous supplements required by post-menopausal ladies: bioflavonoids, carotenes (nutrient A), nutrient C, nutrient E, and the B nutrient complex, particularly B6.
