That is what they called them in the 'olden days.
But we know them as just dried flowers...and they can be dried in quite a few ways but I use the hang up and let them dry method the most. I have been outside because the heat of the day is the best time to cut and hang them as there is less moisture. My drying rack is made of an old baby crib spring that I have suspended from the ceiling of my little potting shed. It sure smells good in there.
