Lady's bedstraw has clusters of very small flowers which emit a lovely honey scent. In fact, this plant was used in olden times to freshen up the odors in bed! It was also used in mattresses since the scent acts as a flea killer. Furthermore, lady's bedstraw is used to make cheese, yellow and even red dyes and the Danish alcoholic drink bjaesk. Many of its applications are reflected in its various nicknames.
