Ascension Weekend: Herbal Wise Women and Potion-Mixers

Ascension Weekend:  Herbal Wise Women and Potion-Mixers

Discover the magical world of herbs and plants during the Ascension weekend: Learn that there’s an herb for everything!

Herbs and plants played an important role throughout the ages. Not only used for food, but also as medicines or key ingredients for things like dying wool. Some plants are surrounded by stories, like the mandrake root. Legend says that when you pull it from the ground it yells and that hearing that yell can kill whoever hears it. Other plants can be used to poison people, making them very dangerous.
