Galium Odoratum Organic

Galium Odoratum
sparingly naturalized in scattered locations in the United States and Canada.[4] It is widely cultivated for its flowers and its sweet-smelling foliage.

A herbaceous plant, it grows to 30–50 cm (12–20 in) long, often lying flat on the ground or supported by other plants. Its vernacular names include wood-ruff, sweet wood-ruff, and wild baby's breath; master of the woods would be a literal translation of the German Waldmeister. It is sometimes confused with Galium triflorum and Galium verum.

It owes its sweet smell to the odiferous agent coumarin, and is sometimes used as a flavoring agent due to its chemical content.
