This time of year is kind of like spring break for viruses – cooler temperatures paired with lots of air travel thanks to vacations and school breaks. Thankfully, there are plenty of herbs like echinacea to keep colds at arm’s length.
One herb can often be found growing bright and beautiful at the side of California highways and makes a pretty addition to summer bouquets on top of aiding digestion… meet milk thistle.
