Apparently, it is also used as an essential oil for its anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. Natural medicine geeks check out this article. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2016/9045196/
Do you enjoy taking photographs of wildflowers?
Every Wednesday I will be sharing a photograph of wildflowers growing in my local area. Who will join me?
Where does the Daucus Carota Subsp. Halophilus grow?
As you can see from the map below the Daucus Carota Subsp. Halophilus only grows in limited areas.
