- The first picture, my focus is the 2nd from bottom "weed" Usnea. it is supposed to be all over U. S. , but I have had trouble finding information on my area about it being found here. I have seen it before, but maybe it was in northwest where I have also lived. Not even the extension office knew anything concerning it. I have read how to make tinctures with this and others following and it is online to order, but I would rather do it myself since it is expensive.
- Stinging Nettles: They are all over and as I am able will do them, I will. Cover plants with alcohol or vinegar for several weeks, then stain liquid through cheese cloth. Toss the plant parts and use dropper They have a lot of properties for many conditions-as does usnea. I would love to have the book.
- Butter bur-I am sure I have seen this plant on outings, but my husband did find this one in capsules at a health food store. It is really helping the allergies-It seems, though I am not ready to jump into not taking my asthma medicines....YET? I hope to find this plant also since the store price was steep.
