Mulberries do more than feed silk worms on mulberry trees. They can be bought dried or fresh. Soak the dried fruit in cold water and add a handful to teas. Mulberries improve vision, boost immunity and heart health. The leaves when brewed as a tea help improve spring allergies. Antioxidants in mulberry fruit help prevent certain cancers and complexion problems associated with aging.

Neem a tree that grows in India and Florida is a healing miracle. All parts of the tree are medicinal. The leaves and bark are anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and anti-parasite. Neem can be consumed as tea, tooth powder or applied as an body oil. This oil is cooling, moistening and stops itches from dry skin and bug bites, safe and convenient to wear outdoors and pleasant for daily use. Made with neem, karanja, sesame, olive and jojoba oils – plus essential oils of lavender, cedarwood and lemongrass – the all-natural formulation soaks in quickly for fast and long-lasting relief. It is especially good for my friends who garden or play outdoor sports. https://neemtreefarms.com/shop/anti-itch-formula/?ap_id=Letha
