Another medicinal herb from India, "Vekhand", as Sweet flag or Acorus calamus is known locally, has #fragrant #rhizomes . They're dried and ground up, and are sold in herbal shops across the country. The most popular use is to apply the root to babies' foreheads after a bath, to prevent colds and coughs. #medicinal #acorus #sweetflag #herb @latebloomer In our house, we mix the roots with other herbs and damask rose powder, and burn it along with myrrh (the fragrant plant resin). Smells amazing.
