Plant Magic at Walmart

I have a new appreciation for Walmart since COVID arrived. I can order online and pick it up; however, today my guy and I ventured out for some essentials. While there, I wanted to look at their nursery to see what plants and seeds they had. I was able to pick up the few missing pieces I needed for the garden, potatoes, onions, asparagus, and sweet potatoes. I was so happy!

While looking at some new flower friends and researching medicinal qualities, my partner was suddenly captivated by the English Daisy. I did not pay too much attention at first, but he did not move from that section. It was like he was being held in a force field. I decided to look up to see if that plant had any medicinal qualities.

We both were in awe.

I am reading from my phone some of the benefits while he is in amazement.

We discovered the medicinal properties of English Daisy have been known and recorded since the late 1500’s. English Botanist and Surgeon, John Gerard had a huge herbal garden in London and wrote the History of Plants – 1597 that I will now be on the hunt for.

The English Daisy benefits listed:

  • Pain Relief
  • Antispasmatic
  • Cough Suppressant
  • Anti -Inflammatory
  • Expectorant
  • Laxitive
  • Health Tonic

Various herbal searches stated that is was well tolerated in homeopathic doses. Always do your homework and consult with your herbalist or  plant friendly health practitioner before consuming any herbs or herbal supplements.

It is supportive in homeopathic treatment of the following:

  • Insomnia
  • Bruises
  • Joint Pains
  • Pain of Sciatica
  • Menstral Cramps
  • Stomach Aches
  • Sprains
  • Coughs
  • Liver and Kidney problems
  • Aids in healing after surgery

So why was he in awe?

My partner is recovering from his 5th back surgery, he had a month ago. This plant called out to him and he listened and then I finally did.  He has been struggling with the majority minus the menstral cramps. Needless to say we are adding the English Daisy to our garden apothecary and healing remedies.

Do some research and check it out and while you are at it, if there is a plant, tree, weed or flower that is begging for your attention I encourage you to research the plant and it’s medicinal qualities.

Nature is our teacher, if we just stop and smell the roses, or daisies.

Learn your plants, they are here to help us.
