Known as an aphrodisiac. Revered by the Chinese culture. Found in
the north side of mountains in hollows. Ginseng is said to be highly good
for the metabolism, and promotes general well being. It has a reputation as an
aphrodisiac, but this seems to be totally based on the fact that it relaxes the
overly tense person a bit. If you suffer from back pain or T.M.J. adding this to
a tea of Catnip and slippery elm may help. It is also presumably useable as an
ingredient in a meade or magewine. Order and sow in the Fall or Winter.
CAUTION: Don't take Ginseng and Ginseng mixtures with Coffee as it will
accelerate the caffeine effects on the body and can cause diarrhea.
