Herb Robert



Herb Robert (otherwise known as Geranium robertianum, stinky Bob – or by Native American’s who have much more romantic names – ‘Crow’s foot’) has been used traditionally as a health tonic to "cure many ailments”.

Now we know that it is the geranium oil that does its magic by carrying oxygen into the cells helping the body fight disease at a cellular level. Two times Nobel Prize winner Dr Otto Warburg always said “the prime cause of cancer is lack of oxygen to the cells”. It contains vitamins A, C and many of the B group, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and phosphorous.  It is believed to aid in wound healing, the chewed leaves may help in sore throat and mouth conditions, toothache, diarrhea and for kidney, liver and gallbladder function.
