Prunella Vulgaris, also known as All Heal, or Self Heal, is an edible herb that contains Vitamin A, C, and the B Vitamin Thiamine. Traditionally, it is used to treat headaches, by expanding blood vessels. It also heals bruises and cuts, contaning tannins which speed up healing and reduce inflammation.
Prunella Vulgaris is fast growing and considered a weed in its native environment. It thrives in full sun to part shade, growing to a short, wide shrub to 30cm in height with purple flowers on stalks appearing in summer.
