Botanical Name: Levisticum officinale

Lovage is a perennial from southern Europe where it can grow up to 2m. It resembles a tall celery with multiple branches with thin hollow stems and stout fleshy roots. The yellow flowers are borne in umbels above the foliage and are followed by brown seeds.

Lovage is sometimes known as Maggie plant, the leaves giving a celery like flavour to soups and stews. The flavour is richer and fuller than celery. It can be used in almost any dish celery or parsley would be used. However it has a much stronger taste than celery so should be used sparingly. Add lovage to green salads, potato dishes, and salad dressings, the stems can be rubbed over the inside of the salad bowl for a subtle flavour. Dried and blended with other dried herbs it makes an excellent salt substitute.

Lovage can be used in digestive difficulties, such as colic, indigestion and flatulence. A tea induces sweating and is used as a diuretic and water retention. A strong tea can be added to the bath water for a body deodorant, or to remove odours from the hands rub them in a cooled lovage tea.

Growing Conditions

Lovage requires a deep rich moist soil in a sunny to semi-shady position. It will grow in sub-tropical regions, however cold winters promote dormancy, which then gives the best growth.

    Herbs, cream and essential oil.

    Hi Sandra ,My herbs arrived in very good condition on Wednesday with all your very welcome hints on growing herbs. The comfrey ointment is working well and I am yet to use the essential oil as I have to purchase the carrier oil that is recommended. I will be happy to purchase from your family business again . I really liked the Thank You card with my name and the person who packed the order. A very nice touch . Carolyn
