Don’t Forget the Fringe!


Though life is always slow-paced here in Mississippi, my head has been whirling the past few days with question, doubts, hopes, and realizations about the next phase of my journey. It’s almost too much for me to write creatively, but I can’t help making a quick post about more lovely medicinal fauna =)


Meet the Fringe tree, aka Chionanthus virginicus. The roots of this delicate-looking tree have been used for centuries to cure diseases of the liver. In addition, they have properties that help stabilize blood sugar. The thin, vine-like roots are easily dug up by hand with a shovel, and are best prepared in a tincture. Blue Boy Herbs uses Fringe root in multiple formulas, including the Bugleweed Fringe (used for diabetes) and Liver tonics. Click the pic above for an informational website!

Don’t you worry – I’ll be posting some pretty exciting information within the next few days =) be blessed, and enjoy this bountiful spring!

About claireaudient

North Carolina girl, born and raised, though now I consider Vermont to be home as well. I guess you could say I'm a migrant gypsy farmer, if you were prone to saying such things. I've played the whole society game; I've been to three different colleges, have an Associate's Degree (in Liberal Studies, or something like that), and have worked more restaurant jobs than I care to admit. Through a curious series of events, however, I've formed a different perspective on what life means to me. Instead of slaving away at a job I hate to eke out a mediocre life staring at a shiny screen, I'm living out my dream to travel while learning organic farming and sustainability practices. It's not always easy, but leaving the comforts of routine to experience the wonders of the universe was a choice I will never regret. <3
