shimmer on waves of spring green
ampoules of healing

My response to Carpe Diem #1202 Corydalis

In another episode of our magical journey through Tibet, Chèvrefeuille has introduced a herb for our inspiration, one of the most secret and sacred herbs used in Tibet and other Asian countries, called Corydalis.

Chèvrefeuille tells us that there are about 428 species worldwide and that it has been widely employed as folk medicine in China, especially as traditional Tibetan medicine for treatment of fever, hepatitis, edema, gastritis, cholecystitis, hypertension and other diseases.
