Bible leaf comes from East Asia and is a relative of tansy and feverfew.

In popular belief, Bible leaf is used as a demon-repellent and lightning herb.

The name balsam herb comes from the smell of this perennial plant, which is reminiscent of a mixture of lemon and mint and is particularly intense when you rub the leaves or stand near the plant after a hot day. Bible leaf (Tanacetum balsamita) has inconspicuous yellow flowers that develop on long stems. It tastes like bubble gum.

Bible leaf can be mixed with gentian, elecampane, centaury, bedstraw, barberry, agrimony, couch grass or celandine; the focus here is on the stomach-friendly and liver-strengthening properties.
