Gearing up for environmental science night, we studied 3 great medicinal plants that have healing properties. Mr. Butler’s class will have this as their ESN theme and a table will be set up to share their knowledge. We started w/ some mint harvesting and drank mint tea while talking about it’s healing properties. Mint is great for colds and even stomach aches. Then we got going on our calendula balm- this flower has great healing effects on cuts and scrapes. So we started making a balm out of it w/ olive oil and beeswax. Then we took a look at sword ferns and talked about the rhizomes on the underside of their leaves. These rhizomes can be rubbed on bug bites or irritated skin and reduce swelling and itching. There will be a lot to share on NOVEMBER 17th for ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE NIGHT!
