Pineapple Mint Sage






























     This is a ground cover that was growing in the center of the spruce trees for several years and then it must have grown to shady with all the trees around it because it is not growing there anymore. 




























































     So we put a small piece by the juniper tree that we brought from the one in the house and it seems to have taken to a good start.  I was told its name is pineapple mint sage.  When you smell it you will understand why it has such a name.

The leaves are fuzzy, light green and white, and will make a nice mild herb tea.












  "When the head is congested, if the feet and limbs are put in a bath with a little mustard, relief will be obtained.   

     There are many more simple remedies which will do much to restore healthful action to the body. All these simple preparations the Lord expects us to use for ourselves, but man's extremities are God's opportunities. If we neglect to do that which is within the reach of nearly every family, and ask the Lord to relieve pain when we are too indolent to make use of these remedies within our power, it is simply presumption. The Lord expects us to work in order that we may obtain food. He does not propose that we shall gather the harvest unless we break the sod, till the soil, and cultivate the produce. Then God sends the rain and the sunshine and the clouds to cause vegetation to flourish. God works and man cooperates with God. Then there is seedtime and harvest.   

     God has caused to grow out of the ground, herbs for the use of man, and if we understand the nature of those roots and herbs, and make a right use of them, there would not be a necessity of running for the doctor so frequently, and people would be in much better health than they are today. I believe in calling upon the Great Physician when we have used the remedies I have mentioned."
