"Wonder Plants 2"

I have this post in my old account, I don't have chance to recover it so I decided to write about my Wonder Plants again.
And now I add on it the Pansit-pansitan which I found in our backyard,
I hope You will learn something and Have a nice reading.


The fruit in pink and yellow white colors, is all purpose fruit for combating colon and prostate cancer, reducing high blood pressure, diabetes, bad cholesterol and scurvy.
To know more about guava click the HERE.



Sampaguita or Jasmine, Known as the national flower of the Philippines, generally known as an ornamental plant. It's Flowers are fragrantand pearly white in color.
But based on studiesand research asides for being beautiful and very fragrant flower, Sampaguita Flowers can be use to treat fever, cough, abdominal distention and diarrhea. It canalso be used to stop milksecretion for women who want to stop breastfeeding.



My Mom also have this green leafy plant at home not for cooking reason but because this plant can use to treat cough, though it can be use as a food ingredient.
just take few leaves and put it over the fire and warm it, until we can make squeeze out the juice to get a tablespoon of it, and then swallow it just like cough syrup.
But some make a tea out of it.

I Hope you like my post for today.

Hubby and I believe that God put a cure for everything here on this earth... We just have to find them. It would be so nice to have a 'medicine cabinet' in the garden! The plants are not only healthful, but beautiful!
