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!
