03/29/16 Pure Organic Menthol Crystals
Pure organic Menthol Crystals are chemicals produced by plants in the mint family. They are the active ingredient in menthol cigarettes, cough drops, and other over-the-counter medication. Of course, none of these menthol laced pharmacy products give you the raw power of pure menthol. :)
This striking plant is yet another member of the Mint family. It has been used in the alternative
treatment of everything from premenstrual syndrome, to breast pain, nervousness, insomnia,
bleeding, and reduction of the prolactin hormone.
Schwing! Bulrush, or "Love Reed" is another Aphrodisiac. Aphrodisiacs are plants or substances
that increase sexual desire, stamina, and pleasure. Like many other sacred plants used by human
kind for centuries, Typha Capensis originates from Southern Africa.

treating fevers to chest congestion. It is considered mostly a feminine herb, being useful for
body pains associated with PMS.

antioxidants. In traditional herbal medicine, it's considered a powerful blood purifier.

These Hawaiian Baby Woodrose (Argyreia nervosa) seeds are the real deal. They are prized among Shamans and have a highly successful germination rate. I'm pretty sure these are in the movie, "The Wizard Of Oz".
