Fireweed

Transcript

Hi, You can see we’ve found a beautiful patch of fireweed, also known as Rosebay Willow. It’s covering the roadsides here in Nova Scotia right now, and it makes a really good summer tea. You just chop the leaves and steep them for about ten minutes and you’ll have a herb to help with mild urinary issues, for skin complaints and it’s generally detoxifying, and it tastes delicious. It’s widespread throughout Canada – it’s a traditional medicine here, and throughout Europe. Just enjoy the pink-ness of it all — the bees are, and I hope you will, too!
