☕ Tea: Pour 1/4 liter of boiling water over 1 teaspoon of forget-me-not flowers and then let it steep for 10 minutes. 1 cup per day is sufficient.

The curare-like alkaloid it contains is a little toxic, but not so much that it could be dangerous.

A distinction is made between the field forget-me-not (Myosotis arvensis), the swamp forget-me-not (Myosotis paustris), the forest forget-me-not (Myosotis sylvatica) and the mountain forget-me-not (Myosotis alpestris, Myosotis nemorosa).

The field forget-me-not is only biennial, but is also the more medicinal plant of all species.

When a man gives a woman a bouquet of forget-me-nots, this is a poetic declaration of love.
