Soap Wart

Let's face it..
You may need to know some of the information that I share...
Our world is in a different place...
Education about the free and natural plant allies that so freely surround us may not be a bad idea...
This is the lovely soapwort and aka sweet wild william...
Growing wild and currently blessing the countryside of NW Ohio...
Her roots are loaded with saponins...
Although all parts of her can be used fresh or dried...
She's a natural detergent...
Used on delicate fabrics in a time and place before we had Tide...
She is an emulsifier and is great for homemade soaps and shampoos...
Great for the skin...
I shall thank her for her herbie gifts as I harvest...
Drying and blending her into a powder for a face wash or added with a natural clay for a mask...
She removes surface dirt, makeup and dead skin cells without peeling the skin...
How cool is that?...
She has other benefits for health as the internet notes, but I have no personal experience with her medicinal healings..
But maybe this year I'll see...
She would be a good skin herbal ally for you and your apothecary...
Be well, my friends, much love, jonnie dee and for those of you that are local, please remember that my real job is as a realtor and I love referrals!..
