Subject: [SCA-Herbalist] mouse ear vs dandelion
I am working on a formula for an A&S competition. It is a formula from
One of the ingredients is mouse ear (Hieracium pilosella) It is not
native to this area. I can purchase seeds to grow it, but I have never
used it before. I am considering switching it for dandelion (Taraxacum
officinale (WEBER)) which is similar in properties.
Since this is a period formula, should I do this or grow the mouse ear.
I have considered simply making a batch with the original herbs, and a
batch with my substitions.
