Changing format for a while. I'll be doing photo assignments from various places.

C is for Camera. And Caine. The idea, every day go shoot the day's letter of the alphabet. When I get to the end, I start all over again.

I'm already wondering how I'm going to carry this off in winter.

The Oil of Henbane and Horsemint from my collection. The horsemint is unopened and full; the henbane oil 3/4 full.

The Horse Chestnut was an incredible, happy discovery for me today. Hopefully, I'll be growing my own soon.

This should be posted in the Packaging group too! What would henbane oil and horsemint be used for?

Packaging group? I'll look for it when I'm more awake. :) I have a wide array of old pharmaceuticals - herbs, anaesthetics, oils, vitamins, homeopathics, etc.

The oil of henbane is from Fritzsche Brothers, Inc., out of New York. It was used as a sedative, hypnotic, calmative, sleep aid and antispasmodic. It was commonly used for epilepsy, nervous disorders and was a popular medicine for all forms of insanity, particularly mania, delusional disorders and nymphomania brought on by childbirth.

Horsemint had a high number of medicinal uses, but rather than quote 2 pages from one of my old herbals, this is one the side of the package: Properties - Stimulant, carminative and sudorific. Useful in flatulency, colic, nausea, vomiting, etc. Infusion 1 ounce in a pint of hot water, dose a wineglassful.
