Product Details

Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) has a long and colorful history. Dating back to ancient Greece and Rome, tansy was used as a folk remedy for a variety of ailments including plague, colic, and digestive disorders. Its reputation continued through the Middle Ages, where it was even believed to ward off evil spirits.

Tansy has also found its way into culinary applications, though with caution. The strong-scented leaves were once used as a substitute for sage in cooking. However, due to its toxicity, tansy is not recommended for internal consumption today. Instead, it is more commonly used as a strewing herb, where the dried leaves are scattered around homes to repel insects.

Tansy was associated with protection and purification. The leaves were sometimes burned as incense or carried as an amulet for these purposes. Tansy's medicinal use has waned in recent times due to its toxic nature if ingested in high doses.

Overall, Tansy holds a unique place in history, with uses spanning the medicinal, culinary, and magical. While its medicinal applications are discouraged today due to safety concerns, tansy remains a fascinating herb with a rich cultural background.
