Inspired by chat conversation with WhiteRose the Brilliant and M. Witch the Wonderful, I found this neat little link.

 

Enjoy !

Most witches don’t believe in gods. They know that the gods exist, of course. They even deal with them occasionally. But they don’t believe in them. They know them too well. It would be like believing in the postman.  T.P.

Love the link . . .

 

That whole conversation made me yearn for the outdoors and the elm trees in the area where I find jewelweed. 

 

Thank you bunches.

I was revisitng Jewelweed this evening and while looking through my herbal, I found this little tid-bit I picked up in my research. I don't remember where I got the info because it was a while ago, so no citations. :(

 

             - Boil the leaves (chopped) until a dark orange liquid forms.  Liquid can be frozen in to ice cubes for up to a year and rubbed on poison (ivy, oak, sumac), nettle stings, and insect bits and stings as needed. This infusion can also be pressure canned. 

             - Fresh stem juice rubbed on before rash appears will help prevent out break. 

             - Don't tincture, can go bad and give people bad reactions.

Mmm this flower looks like a lady's covered up parts - or is it just me who sees this?

Belwenda,
