Why do we love this plant so much?

Anyone who feels drawn to the scent of the woodruff has probably asked themselves what the reason is.

The plant is picked just before flowering and can be left to dry for a while. The aromas unfold all the more if you let the plant dry for a few days. The fresh scent of the plant has an invigorating effect and stimulates the appetite. As a home remedy, the plant can help against inflammation of the urinary tract. In addition, the tea from woodruff is said to be an antispasmodic in folk medicine.
