Ever heard of the herb robert? Maybe you did, but did you know it has some amazing properties? And it is very common wild plant.
If herb Robert is touched, its fragrance gives it away as a geranium (Pelargonium), a familiar group of house plants from South Africa. They emit a fragrance, especially upon being touched, which is intended to put potential predatory plant-eaters off their food. At least a certain percentage of people find the smell unpleasant. The smelly liquid that is acquired by boiling the plant is used in Finland to get rid of bugs and also to treat wounds. Its flowers are a deep rose-red and in light places the whole plant is often crimson, which is the same colour that it is in the autumn.
Research has revealed herb robert is a source of germanium, a valuable element to the body, as it has the ability to make oxygen available to the cells. Herb Robert is regarded as a medicinal herb.
