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!

Down With The Sickness


Down With The Sickness

Oh No! The “common cold” has struck again! I don’t get sick often, but when I do I’m almost always caught with a nasty lingering cough that lasts for a couple of weeks. But this time, I’m prepared! Living and working at Blue Boy Herbs certainly has its perks, one of which is full access to their wonderfully healing tinctures. The taste may be bitter, but the effects are extraordinary – so I’m going all in! 5x a day, baby!
