Lovage Root absolute / Heavy, Musky, Rooty, Spicy, Earthy / $150 oz Levisticum officinale
"This herbe for hys sweete savoure is used in bathe."— Henry Dethicke, The Gardener's Labyrinth, 1577.
Lovage was one of the herbs introduced by the Romans, and until the middle of the last century it was always grown in English herb gardens. It has such a quaint, old-fashioned name that one regrets its exclusion from the modern herb garden. One old writer tells us, it " joyeth to growe by wayes and under the eaves of a house, it prospers in shadowy places and loves running water." Lovage grows wild on the sea-coasts in parts of Scotland and Northumberland. Parkinson says of it: "The whole plant and every part of it smelleth somewhat strongly and aromatically and of a hot, sharpe, biting taste. The Germans and other Nations in times past used both the roote and seede instead of Pepper to season their meates and brothes and found them as comfortable and warming."
