Sevia Plant-10x Sweeter Than Sugar-Almost No Calories

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

I just ran across this plant in one of my new seed catalogs. You can grow
it in pots so you have access to it all year. The plant grows up to 3' tall.
The leaves can be used fresh or dry for later use.
If you prefer to buy Stevia in ready to use form look for it in grocery and
health food stores.
I plan to order a couple of the plants. I like to use plants , herbs, and
vegetables in their most natural forms.
I'm the new leader of the Natural Remedies Team and we discuss many
plants and herbs and their use in herbal remedies.
While many of you use such herbs as basil & parsley, you may not be
aware that they have medicinal qualities as well.
A tea made from parsley acts as a diuretic and helps relieve fluid re-
Garlic acts as a natural anti-biotic.
If you are interested in plants and their uses I invite you to join our
Natural Remedies Team.

    My favorite natural remedy is honey on a cut or burn. It helps it heal and fights infection! Yay!

    I would like to know more about Stevia. Is it what they use in that new sweetner Truvia? I wonder which is better, Stevia or Splenda? You've peeked my interest, I guess I'll have to look into it now.
