A plant with sweet blue flowers and many stories surrounding it. It was said that in medieval times, a knight and his lady were walking along the riverside. He picked a posy of flowers, and because of the weight of his armor, he fell into the river. As he sank, he threw the flowers to the woman and called “forget me not!”, hence the name. The whole plant is used as an astringent, and has been used internally for a variety of eye ailments. It is also useful fresh or powdered to stop bleeding externally. It can also soothe the nerves, promote restful sleep, and reduce high blood pressure. Some say that drinking this tea can support a youthful appearance and heighten beauty. Enjoy these flowers in a tea, bath, or other preparations!
