Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) - 04
(Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) - 04) The bloodroot has a single flower and stock which begins as a bud close to the leaf stem, as pictured in this matured plant. The root of the bloodroot has a reddish colored juice, which gives the plant its name, for when it's cut it appears to be bleeding. The Native Americans used the juice as an insect repellant, for the treatment of fungus infections such as ringworm, and for the treatment of rheumatism. In early American medicine, the blood root was used as an expectorant in treating bronchitis and asthma. Let us strive to preserve these wonders of God's creation for all future generations.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
