Aconite


In the first Harry Potter movie, Professor Snape asks questions of Harry. He mentions 'monkshood'. Of course, Hermoine knows that monkshood is Aconite. 

Aconite is a shrub that blooms purple/blue flowers in summertime. Bees love these bushes. 
Healing ailments such as skin problems, pain, arthritis and fever. Homeopathic remedies also indicate healing for stress and anxiety.

I miss Harry Potter. And anything to help relieve stress and is pleasant on the eyes is a good to have in life.

Interesting stuff - just because we can create artificial treatments shouldn't invalidate the organic treatments that inspired them.

So love your theme! Thanks for sharing, and in such a cool way. I read all the HPs and saw the movies. Enjoy the A to Z Challenge! Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015 @ lisabuiecollard.com

I have a few books that I use for reference for possible herbal remedies. I like learning more. It adds so much realism to the fantasy worlds I create.

That's a beautiful flower, I can't wait for the flowers to really be in full bloom! I haven't read any of the Harry Potter books. Every time I tell someone they're shocked haha!
