      Here in the Middle we aren’t allowed to use medical preparations for A&S competition, but I think a comparison would be interesting. How would you test it?

      I am working on a formula for an A&S competition. It is a formula from
      Hildegard's Physica.

      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

      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.
