A patch of beautiful goldenrod - isn't she lovely!

Have you noticed the beautiful goldenrod in bloom right now? If you know someone who suffers from cat allergies, you may want to make a tincture of the flowers, stem, and leaves - the upper part of the plant. It can also be helpful for some people for seasonal allergies. It isn't in my "top 10", but perhaps in my "top 30" if I had such a list...

Matt Wood, a local and well known herbalist, says it is for the person with drippy, watery eyes that look like they just came out of a swimming pool, whether due to allergies or a cold. He says that simply chewing on the flowers can provide comfort in this scenario.
