On today’s episode of BackYard Witch we have pluchea Foetida – Stinking Camphor Weed! Yes folks, it stinks.

It can also be used on a wound to reduce swelling. After it blossoms, it seed similar to a thistle, and the fluff is milder smelling. I thought I’d burn it on some charcoal to see how the aroma changed. It didn’t. The End.
