Sticks and Stones

Gifts for Spirit, Mind, Body


This time of year a lovely little flower starts to decorate our landscape with its purple/red flower heads.  Purple Dead Nettle, Lamium purpureum, is a member of the mint family so once you have it you pretty much ALWAYS have it.  Bees love it.  It hasnt been a heavy hitter from the medicinal side but thats changing as research is being done into its folk remedy treatment for allergies and inflamation.  It is edible, great in salads, loaded with fiber, iron and vitamins.  Magically it is great for "killing" addictions of the mind.

Thanks Bubbles, these lovely plants are found thru out my yard.  Wonder what addictions of the mind they are helping me "kill". Thank you Purple Dead Nettle.
