Agastache Mexicana Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract description

_Agastache mexicana_ (also known as hyssop) is a flowering shrub native to North America that’s an edible plant with an anise-like flavour and aroma. The flower, leaf, and stem are sources of antioxidants, including hesperetin, apigenin, salvigenin, kaempferol, and quercetin. Research on this plant’s direct benefit to skin is somewhat lacking; however, its antioxidant and calming abilities means it complements the benefits of more proven antioxidants.
