Roses by Doris Potter

Doris Potter Roses
Who does not associate the smell and the beauty of roses with summer, joy, love and well-being.

In our gardens and hedges we can find numerous varieties of often beautifully scented roses. They belong to the family of rosacea, are strong plants with wooden stocks and branches, have beautiful coloured scented flowers with five petals (excepting the hybrid variety), with multiple stamens in the centre. Their fruit, the hip is oval and turns red once ripe. The plant is vigorous and has thorns; the leaves are beautifully formed with a strict rhythmical structure. read more →

Benefits of Plantain

Plantain Doris Potter Only Natural

by Doris Potter

Plantain, (Ribwort, Fleawort) – Plantago Lanceolata and Plantago Major

Plantain is another favourite of mine, mostly unnoticed, yet abundantly grows along the edges along lanes and footpaths, camouflaged amongst grasses. The slightly sticky seeds get carried around with our foot wear. The very observant Red Indians named it the “White Men’s Foot Step” as it grew wherever he had been.

It again proves to be a very nutritious and powerful healing plant. It is easily found and is the perfect first aid plant when out and about. Rub the leaves and put it on itchy allergic skin, or insect bites, or use it as a plaster on wounds. For blisters on your feet, just put the leaves over the blister in your shoes. It is antiseptic, ant inflammatory and promotes the healing process in the tissues.   Plantain also helps wounds that just do not want to heal, like bedsores, ulcers etc. read more →

Bellis Perennis – the Common Daisy

Common Daisy Doris Potter Only Natural

Submitted by Doris Potter

Do you remember from childhood past times, the playing with daisies or making daisy chains?

Can you put your foot on 7 daisies? According to a folklore saying: If you can, then summer surely has come.  I love the very common plants and knowing the mystery of their healing properties. Such a plant is the Common Daisy, growing in abundance all around us, but its very good healing properties are almost forgotten.

Its pretty flowers peep out from our lawns from early spring until late autumn. This plant has given its existence completely over to the course of the sun, even the day rhythm of light and dark is expressed in opening its petals in the morning and closing them in the evening. Is it surprising that “Daisy” is a shortened version of “Days-Eye” or that in the North Myths it is referred to as “Baldur’s eye”? Baldur being the Sun-god.

This little plant has not only an affinity to light and the sun, but also harbours an enormous amount of vitality. You mow it and already the next day it is there again.  Apparently its great healing qualities are equivalent to the nowadays better known Calendula or Arnica. It used to be called ”Bruisewort” or “Woundwort” indicating it’s use, also reduces bleeding. read more →

Did You See the First Shoots of Stinging Nettle Appearing?

Doris Potter

Submitted by Doris Potter

Instead of being reviled, consider stopping for a moment. Stinging Nettle (Urtica diocia) is one of the best healing plants found in our part of the world. When I looked it up it listed it as a remedy for 29 symptoms of illness! Don’t worry I will not bother you with them all! But I will give you the gist of its quality.

Stinging nettle is a close companion to mankind. You will find it wherever humans are dwelling or have dwelled, never in places where there was no settlement. The young stinging nettle leaves are very rich in vitamins and iron and can be used as a very nutritious vegetable or as tea. read more →

What has nature in store for us after a long Winter?

Doris Potter, Massage, Only Natural

You can look in the hedges along tie lane ways in our country side or at forest edges and you may find a shrub with delicate white flours in early spring, usually in March, but this year already in February.

The shrub has long spikey thorns and in October little fruits not unlike plums, but are bitterly sour and used traditionally in sloe gin after the first frost.

You may know it as

Blackthorn/Sloe – Prunus Spinosa (Rose family)
