    Does anyone have experience with the therapeutic effects? I have a big pot steeping right now from a bunch I just picked from the garden. I'm not a big fan of tea but I figure I'll cool most of it and drink it cold. I've been reading good things about it being helpful as an antibaterial/fungal, good for IBS, ADHD, anxiety and a host of other issues.

    Don't forget thyroid suppressing. This is one of the main herbs to treat hyperthyroidism.

    *sigh* used to love the stuff... now have to avoid it like the plague due to high oxalic acid content (I'm on a Kidney stone prevention plan).

    I think it makes a lovely tea for relaxing. Not entirely sure it's effective for anti-anxiety...but general stress, sure. We (well, my wife) grow a bunch and dry it for use throughout the winter.
