Otherwise known as Meadowsweet, Queen of the Meadow root is native to Europe and Western Asia. This plant is called 'Queen of the Meadow' because it grows in low-lying, damp meadows exclusively. It was discovered in Welsh burial sites dating back to around 33000 BCE.
It was also Queen Elizabeth I's favorite herb above all others that were used to scent her chambers. The scent of Meadowsweet has been compared to an almond scent with strong floral notes from its flowers.
Queen of the Meadow may be used after being brewed into a tea. It has been used to treat a variety of ailments in traditional medicine.
