wow, that is a very interesting way how to use it :) Thank you for the information! :)
I'm only drying it and using for tea (in mixture with other plants) :)

Yes, I agree with you! People in Dalmatia (Mediteranean Croatia) use this plant very much, they sink this plant in olive oil and left it on sun 30 days, this dissolve use for wounds, sun burns, mosquito bites...almost for everything :)
