Now it is time to research the folklore, myths and stories that have built up around your chosen herb. This is fun and often very colorful, but has a serious side to it as well.

  • Short introduction
  • Stories, Myths, Superstitions about your chosen plant
  • Identify clearly the cultural origin of the story
  • Reference citations
  • 1500 words, include the word count please.
