    My hubby has just been reading up about it-according to him, it won't be there later on-I will be having it for tea.......................................apparently it is an aphrodisiac lol.


    Thanks Marley, I can sleep now.

    As long as I get enough for myself the rest will be up for grabs no problem.

    The scent of the oils from the stem is very strong-I can smell it even from a distance.
