One of my favorite places to be is the aspen grove when the pedicularis starts to bloom. Lying back, the soft ground holds me. The air is starting to get warm, but the breeze is still crisp. I look up through the filtered light of the aspen leaves turning, and pick a pedicularis leaf, chew slowly, breath deeply. Aspen, pedicularis and corydalis all grow here together. The skullcap just a little ways down the hill along the river banks. Try this elixir for aches and pains, tight muscles, menstrual cramps, all the tweaks and twitches and creaks. 1/2 to 1 tsp as needed. A lovely deep bitter cherry flavor. Try with whiskey for a tasty old fashioned.*
