White Pine

White pine (Pinus strobus) is a needled-evergreen plant,  also recognized as the tree of peace.  It has a tall straight trunk while its leaves can usually be seen in the cluster of 5, 4, or 3 which normally fall at maturation. The leaves are serrated, bluish-green, and 2-5 inches long. The tree is marked by slender cones that contain seeds for the propagation of white pine through the wind. The cone is scaled with a resinous tip and rounded apex.

It acts as rubefacient, diuretic, antiseptic, and anthelmintic. White pine is also fruitful in the treatment of urinary tract infections and rheumatic conditions. The inner bark of the white pine presents itself as a perfect expectorant and demulsifier. Topical application of its poultice aids in healing the cuts, wounds, and sores.


Peppermint (Mentha x Piperita) is a natural hybrid of watermint (Mentha aquatica) and spearmint (Mentha spicata). This rhizomatous herbaceous perennial has serrated leaves, marked by red veins with light pink to mauve flowers growing in a cone shape.
Since 1500 BC, peppermint has been imparting its sprightly, fresh coolness to sweet and savory dishes. Medicinally, it helps with bacterial infections, chest congestion,  muscular spasms, fever, pain, wet cough, and inflammatory conditions. It is a great ally of the gastrointestinal tract as it helps with various digestive ailments, including flatulence, bloating, nausea, heartburn, hiccups, stomach/intestinal cramps, irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive ailments that erupt due to the colonization of bacteria.
