(Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) - 03) The coltsfoot is a native of Europe, which was imported to the United States to treat coughs (tussis is Latin for cough).  The leaves of the coltsfoot were used as an ingredient in herbal tobacco, which was smoked as a cure for asthma.  Coltsfoot tea, sweetened with honey, was used for colds and asthma.  Even the flower stocks of the coltsfoot were used to make "syrup of coltsfoot", which was recommended for treating chronic bronchitis.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
