SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I was out here in the mountains today, and I ran across a kind of flower that only blooms once in a while in the mountains. It has tiny purple flowers on it, and a kind of hairy, whitish-green leaves. And it’s an herb! (1)

If you rub the leaves with your hand, and then sniff them, it has the most incredible smell to it! … a little like the kind of oil [linseed oil] that I used to mix my oil paints with when I was a child.

Sniffing of the oil, in moderation, intuition tells me, causes grief to release from the lungs. (However, I’d like to add that I advise caution in trying out wild herbs, no matter what may be in various plant guides regarding their medicinal qualities.)

So I sniffed a little, and I made a note of that, and I started walking along the trail again. Then all of a sudden, I started crying! And so, in my experience, it actually works really well, and very fast! … I’ll put some photos and the name in; I’ll find them for you …
