Benzoin has a long history of use in the East as an incense and in perfumes. Benzoin resin is a yang sedative, and has a pronounced effect on congestion, seemingly to melt away blockages. It is an expectorant, and warms and tones the heart and increases circulation. Use benzoin to ease congested breathing caused by asthma and allergies.

Skin Care: Use benzoin resin in external skin applications to heal cuts and sooth inflammation of rough cracked skin. Benzoin is indicated for use where there is redness, irritation, or itching, such as eczema. The dark, vanilla-like resin also acts as an anchoring base note for aromatherapy blends and as a fixative in perfumery.

Cold Conditions: Use Benzoin in massage blends and aromatherapy applications for all cold conditions of the respiratory system ( related to the lungs). Colds, influenza, coughs, and bronchitis all benefit from benzoin, as well as cold conditions of the joints such as gout and rheumatoid arthritis.

Belladonna, or deadly nightshade is no longer used in herbal medicine. Its leaves, roots and black berries are dangerous. They contain a class of highly toxic chemicals called tropance alkaloids.

They are found in other plants in the Solanaceae family, such as thornapple and jimsonweed (Datura stramonium), angel's trumpets (Brugmansia spp.), henbane (Hyoscyamus niger), and European mandrake (Mandragora officinarum).

A prominent feature of the tropane alkaloids is their ability to produce hallucinations and delirium, which may explain the hold these plants have on our imaginations and folklore.

Bee balm - Colonists brewed a black tea from Mondara and named it Oswego, perhaps after the Native American town where they first found it growing. They used it to relieve colic, fevers and colds, and the lemon scented oil was used to scent soaps. Both useful and pretty, bee balm soon became an early garden favorite.

Today bee balm continues to be a most useful herb to use in both animals and humans. Like most mints, bee balm has a special affinity towards the digestive tract. Bee balm has excellent antibacterial qualities that make it useful for treating infections. So all told Bee balm tea is really good for you but I must confess that the reason I drink it all summer long is for the spicy, sweet taste.
