Get to know your local plant life for medicinal purposes, 92°

Learn about (your) local plants, wild plants, for herbal/medicinal use.
It's possible in a post TSHTF world, doctors and pharmacies might not be readily available, if you have a working knowledge of your local wild plant life that can be used for medicinal uses, it could be a life saver. You can also use this knowledge for bartering purposes. Plus it's just plain fun to go out and harvest good things from nature.

Try to learn about at least one a week, go out in your local area, identify the plant life, then look up what those plants are good for. Here's one, pine trees, the needles are full of vitamin C, you need never get scurvy if you have these plants around you, Just grab a hand full of green needles, plop them in hot water, steep to make a tea, strain and drink up.

The sap or resin of the pine tree has antibacterial properties.

There, you know one now, so now it's your turn.

That's very interesting about pine needles! I didn't know about the Vitamin C benefits! Of course the antibacterial thing is well known and is why those clever makers of poison-in-a-bottle like to make their bathroom cleaners etc smell like pine.

My contribution is a native New Zealand plant. Koromiko (a hebe) is wonderful for settling an upset stomach. I only use it when I have a seriously bad tummy because it tastes very bitter, but it is the best thing for helping to stop diarrhoea.

Very cool Lindis C! I just learned about another common plant that I considered a pest in the past, that's the cottonwood tree, the male plant has these buds that grow in the spring, if you take these buds and put them in olive oil, this makes a good skin salve. Just do a search for it.

If you get stung by a stinging nettle, pull it out by the root (only the leaves will sting you) and take it home, clean and lightly sauté the stem and leaves in olive oil and garlic for a delicious side dish. But to relieve the sting, find a large dock leaf that should be growing nearby (as they always do) and rub onto your skin. The sting will disappear.
