lovage Levisticum officinalis

Lovage leaf oil.....

Lovage is a large perennial herb with an ancient medical reputation. This herb can reach a height of up to 6 to 9 feet tall. It’s used mainly for digestive complaints, edema, skin problems, menstrual irregularities, and fever.

This herb is used in South European cuisine. It vaguely resembles celery in appearance and flavor. The tea can be applied to wounds as an antiseptic or drunk to stimulate digestion.

Lovage, much like borage, is considered what is called a "magic bullet" companion plant. Planted in close physical proximity to each other in the theory that they help each other in nutrient uptake, pest control, pollination, and other factors.
