We appreciate your posts and the following ones are randomly selected because of their botanical qualities. They are manually curated on behalf of the Amazing Nature Community.

First a brief explanation about Botany:

Botany is a broad term covering scientific study of plants. It could be from a small living organism to a tree. Included would be flora, fungi, lichens, trees and flowering plants.

We are also interested in plants for their psychological (good for the mind & soul) benefits.

Through botany, medicinal properties are discovered from nature. Food, medicines, parks, forests, pollution and much more have been improved with botanical knowledge. Botanists search for alternatives from the harmful chemicals used on crops and the deforestation that has damaged the health of our planet.

Herbalism, with ancient people identifying edible, medicinal or poisonous plants, is the original of Botany. Our ancestors and Native peoples were botanists in their own right. They knew of the healing properties to be found in plants but much of that knowledge had been lost to future generations.


Now I would like to bring your attention to the curated posts and ask you to show some love to the amazing authors:


  • @abis28 researches the Bixa Orellana plant which can be used as a dye as well as to repel insects and help in the healing of wounds. The first known use of this plant, perhaps from the Paleolithic period. is that it was domesticated to perform religious and supernatural ceremonies. Indigenous people would use it to paint their bodies and for decorative purposes.

  • @angiemitchell delighted in waking up to the sound of rain and seeing the beauty of the rain drops on the flowers and passionfruit in her garden. Their leaves twinkled in the sunless light of the early morning. Something we take for granted, like the magic of rain, has made the flowers and fruit happy.

Many plants our locals use straight off the land, we look at some as weeds yet they are edible, always fascinating learning.
