Bärwurz has been grown in monastery gardens since the Middle Ages. All plants that contain the word “bear” are very special herbs that carry the power and strength of their big brother and have strong, renewing mechanisms of action.

Bärwurz is similar to fennel, but differs in the root.

Hildegard von Bingen: The bear fennel is warm and has dry green power. Whoever has gout, let him eat the powder with bread, and whoever has jaundice, crush the root in vinegar and eat it that way. Then let him also make a soup with this vinegar and he will be healed.
