    Hi friends,

    i got an idea to start a new thread where we can discuss values of plants it can be ornamental, veg, fruit or medicinal plants. One member will start one plant and give its properties whatever u know then other member can add more whatever we know, when we complete discussing one plant then anyone can start with new plant or tree. I hope u will like this. So i will start with ROSE--
    Rose--- Rose is an ornamental plant, it is used for many functions and festivals. Rose comes in variety of colors like red, blue , green, pink, yellow-----. Rose is used to make perfumes. It is used for food items too--gulkand, essence.
    Whoever likes this game pleaase continue with other characteristics of roses, what i have mentioned that is only few

    bye

    Neem flowers are used in Ugadi Pachadi
    some neem leaves are tossed in the bucket of water then if you take bath it has cooling effect (especially used for small babies during bath)
    neem leaves paste is used for skin rashes for babies
    also neem patse balls are given in empty stmoch for degestion for kids.

    Neem is deemed very effective in the treatment of scabies although only preliminary scientific proof exists which still has to be corroborated, and is recommended for those who are sensitive to permethrin , a known insecticide which might be irritant. Also, the scabies mite has yet to become resistant to neem, so in persistent cases neem has been shown to be very effective. There is also anecdotal evidence of its effectiveness in treating infestations of head lice in humans. It is also very good for treating worms (soak the branches and leaves in lukewarm water and then drink it).

    For the herbal treatment of dialysis, which is progress, they use tulasi as one of the ingredients. I heard this from a Dr. who is doing this research. He also said that, tulasi is having medicinal properties that is why they give tulasi in the temples along with water or plain, which is in practice from the time immemorial.
