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:
- @rrom21 explains the healing properties of the Tua-Tua Morada plant. She has first hand experience with this and uses a tea made from this plant to help her kidney ailment.
- @sustainablyyours does detailed research on the difference between two similar looking edible plants, Henbit and Purple Dead Nettle. Early spring is suggested as the best time to start if you want to do any wild foraging.
- @steemflow takes a walk to check out the leaves of the Palash Tree which are abundant in his area. He tells us about the big green leaves of the Palash Tree (as called in India), scientifically known as Butea Monosperma and also named Flames of Forest when it’s red flowers are evident. In India, especially in Hinduism, this plant has a special significance and is considered to be very sacred. There are many medicinal and everyday uses for the plant.
