African Wormwood; Artemesia afra
artemesia afra plant

          This species is closely related to that of the standard Wormwood. It has an extensive history of use as a medicine, spiritual catalyst for stimulating dreams, the minds eye, and is a main ingredient in the historic brew known as Absinthe. Wormwood has a long history of use for ridding the body of parasitic worms. I've used it in a spray on plants and it works to repelle predators from them !


AlfAlfa
medicago sativa

         This herb is loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and even essential amino acids. It's particularly high in vitamins D, K, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and others. Alfalfa has also been commonly used as a fodder crop, and to stimulate the fertility of soil. I do believe it has been a target by corrupt GMO organizations.

Aloe Vera
aloe vera plant

         Aloe Vera is prized among herbalist for cuts and burns. Some even consume it for treating ulcers. Although it has a long history of use as medicine dating back to even the ancient Egyptians, it has not been evaluated or approved by the FDA. The plant is easily cloned by pulling up one stalk by the root and transplanting it.


American beautyberry (Callicarpa americana)
American beauty berry plant


American beauty berry grows wild in Florida. I first identified it wandering around outside. It's very beautiful but has deadly look a likes to be careful! It's recognized by nearly every major academic botanical institution and organizations. It has many medicinal applications among herbalists and even Native americans have had an interest in it. It's an American staple for sure!


Anise; Pimpinella anisum
pimpinella anisum seeds

         Anise is typically used in the form of a tea to help relieve congestion caused from allergies, colds, and flues. It's also used as in the original recipes for Absinthe in combination with Wormwood and Fennel. Pharmacologically, Anise contains anethole which is a very mild stimulant. The plant contains many other compounds as well.


Annatto Seed [ Bixa orellana ]

annatoo seed fruit

Annatto is an industrial gem. Like many other plants, it goes completely known to many, even though they consume extracts of it almost every day. It's used by herbalist for many things including vomiting, fluid retention, heartburn, malaria, hepatitis, fever, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure [webmd]. Academic studies show some very powerful pharmacological activity caused from its various phytochemical constituents. It's used in culinary dishes around the globe as well. The more vibrant the color, the more potent the product.


<+center>Arnica;
arnica montana wild

Arnica is typically used in the form of an external tincture. It's applied on sprains, bruises, and wounds. This is one of many plants that is not used repeatedly. It's also not suggested for internal use because it often has irritating effects on the stomach. So it's something to be made into a poultice or a spray even.


Ashwagandha; Withania somnifera
withania somnifera

         The scientific name of the species is Withania somnifera, while the Opium Poppy has the scientific name of Papaver somniferum. Both are associated with sleep. The plant has a vast history of use in Ayurvedic medicine. It is supposed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-stress, antioxidant, mind-boosting, immune-enhancing, and rejuvenating properties.
