    I’m big on medicinal plants since I spend a lot of time in the woods. My granny didn’t trust store bought medicine and she thought the stuff you got from the doctor was sugar water as she put it. My Mother was Blackfoot Indian, so I was taught about medicinal plants from her. I remember as a child how we were given tea made from staghorn sumac to break a high fever, or willow twigs for headaches. Both work wonders. If I carried only two plants as a cure for everything I would carry yarrow and slippery elm. Yarrow has about 20 medicinal uses just by itself. Great info.

      That’s great that you learned so much from your gram! I’m still learning about all the medicinal plants, but I know yarrow is a great one to have on hand. I like knowing that I can treat many things at home from plants in my flower bed and garden!
