Saving boneset

Boneset

The boneset returned this year even stronger, with more stems, than last year.  (This photo shows the boneset plant from a year ago.)  With the recent knock-down rainstorms, many of the boneset stalks toppled.  After waiting for the boneset to dry thorougly for a couple days, I harvested a good portion of it.

First, I made a tincture . . .

And then I hung the remaining stalks for the leaves to dry . . .

I can hear you asking, “What is boneset good for?”  I don’t have a good answer for you since I’m still learning the answer myself.  For now, I am simply grateful for the harvest and the means to preserve it.
