The medicinal herbalists from Fenland Natural Health conducted an interesting walk around Westgate woods and meadow. I did not know that so many of the plants we take for granted had medicinal uses. From nettles and dandelions to hawthorn and willow teas and tinctures can be made to help with digestion and circulation and many other disorders. A useful tip was to learn that plantain, so common in lawns and grassland, is far better than dock leaves for relieving stings and can be use to staunch bleeding and reduce inflammation.
