Product information "Galium odoratum"

Sweet woodruff is one of the most beautiful signs of spring for many people. Its fresh green, lively arranged leaves and the delicate, white flowers give off an incomparable fragrance. It is food for bees!
Sweet woodruff is a medicinal and culinary herb whose aromatic leaves should be harvested just before flowering. It is an indispensable ingredient for “sweet woodruff punch”.
