Hi Everyone,


Plants facing stressful conditions like drought produce their own aspirin-like chemical, US researchers say.

Well don't quote me the source but I have heard theories regarding plants having the ability to feel and experience emotions.

I have also heard about plants acting differently with regards to the emotions of the humans in their presence.

Also heard about certain plants and their related drug experiences being a reflection on what the "plant" knows.

A case of major guilt as I runs outside to water the plants I was letting dry out as its nearly October and my brother forgot to water them much when I was gone. I am never ever going to let a plant die again, the weather has to do it!

They must feel pain!

Natural Aspirin is a product of the white willow tree. The inner bark is collected in the spring. It is in the form of salicin which turns into salicilic acid or aspirin in the bloodstream. This bypasses the damage done by synthetic aspirin which irritates the stomach.

Salicin is far more effective than aspirin. Chewing on the dry bark makes you feel like a shield descends from the head down to the feet between you and the pain in a matter of minutes.

The bark is nasty bitter. But nothing compares!
