What is Gandh Prasarni (Paederia Foetida):
 We love this herb because it's got a unique property that's been used in ancient India for thousands of years. The Sanskrit word for it is Gandha Prasarini, which means "it spreads smell." We love that about this herb—it makes for an interesting contrast to the more common medicinal properties of its name!

Gandha means "smell" and Paederia foetida means "skunk vine," which describes the plant well. It is a perennial twining vine rising from a woody rootstock. Stems grow up to 7 m or more, climbing or prostrate and rooting at the nodes. Leaves are oppositely arranged, sometimes in whorls of 3, with prominent stipules. Leaf stalks are mostly up to 6 cm long. Leaves are oval to linear-lanceolate, 2-11 cm long, hairy or smooth, often lobed at base. Leaves and stems have a atinking smell, especially when crushed—especially when crushed!
