I'm fairly new to the site but I love your stories about Aunt Bett. I was certified as an herbalist with Apollo Herbs (RI) last December. I love the article about Goldenrod! I knew it was the Ragweed that caused the sneezing/allergic reactions and not the Goldenrod but wanted to add that a tea brewed from the dried flowerheads will actually inhibit the allergic reaction to the Ragweed. Nature always provides the anecdote if you know where to look, which I'm sure you know from such a learned teacher as your Aunt Bett. She sounds like someone I would've loved, too. =) Thanks for sharing!
