I have always been interested in what plants are used in alternative medicine, as I am a Spiritual healer, the plants I grown are for that purpose, I have been able to make jams, Xmas sauces for meat dishes, as well as hand creams for sore and chapped hands, I think if the medical profession took a leaf out of our books, they would be very surprised at what we did, but skepticism always plays a hand &for them well they will not believe it until they are actually treated with that wild plant or leaf, we take healing very serious, and if those long ago used them why shouldn't we. And time after time we have been proven right.
