Afrikantje is a fairly large-, yearling, not so strongly branched herb, that is approximately one meter high. The finely divided leaves are very deeply incised, sharply toothed and labeled with oil-reducing glands. Given the name of the flower -African or Afrikaantje (Dutch) - it is quite surprising to know that it, without a doubt, comes from Central America. Specifically from Mexico. In our garden they grow abundantly in trays and pots; in this way they decorate the garden and keep worms away. The yellow flowers of Afrikantje work as a panacea in expelling negative energies. Put a handful of flowers in a bowl of water, rub them loose with your fingers. Let them soak in all night and pour it over your body..
The use of herbs and their medicinal effect goes back to the very beginning of our history.
The earliest civilizations already used plants instinctively for both nutrition and healing. Also, the ancient Egyptians practiced herbal medicine - at a particularly high level. The Jewish people know clergymen who heal people with herbs. Around 460 BC, the father of medicine, Hypocrates, works in Greece. The Romans use herbs and flowers in various ways. In China, herbal systems have traditionally been developed for therapies. Native American Shamans and indigenous African cultures use herbs for healing and rituals.
