Parts of Plants: The Petals

Continuing our blog saga about parts of the plants that help, today’s focus is petals. Petals are basically altered leaves that surround the procreative parts of flowers. Usually brightly colored or unusually shaped to attract animals that can help pollinate the flower. All of the petals of a flower are called a corolla ; the extra surrounding leaves are called the sepals . When the petals and sepals of a flower look similar they are called tepals. Petals differ in different species, and the number of petals a flower has may tell of the plant's classification. Here are a few eSutras Organics products that prominently have petals as the main ingredient: · eSutras Organics Rose Bath Salt – An amazing and aromatic salt !! Only add two tablespoons of bath salts into the bag provided and place in your bath water. Relax and enjoy your bath as usual. The salts will not dissolve in water, but should stimulate your senses, body and skin. · eSutras Organics

Bark!

Previously I blogged about how great the roots of plants are. They have ayurvedic healing properties and spectacular health benefits that, although accepted and cultivated in the ancient world, the modern world is more concerned with chemical products. I want to give more information about the healing properties of plants. Today’s focus: bark! The bark of certain trees/plants holds many nutrients the roots or flower of the plant don’t have. Not only do we use it for products like spices and other flavorings, medicines, poisons, and cork can be derived from tree bark. Bark has also been used to make cloths, canoes, ropes, even paper. Bark can even be recycled and used as mulch for gardens! Here are a few eSutras Organics products that have this amazing, natural ingredient: · eSutras Organics Albizzia Bark – Albizzia is thought to enhance all aspects of neurotransmitter secretion and regulation.

Root Power!

Plants are beautiful, useful parts of our lives. Whether for health reasons, decoration, or just plain eating them we use plants in almost every aspect. We need oxygen in the air we breathe. Plants take in the carbon dioxide releases oxygen, keeping the air we breathe full of oxygen. Plants are also a huge source of vitamins and minerals we couldn’t get from other foods. All in all we need/love plants. We use every single aspect of the plant, too. One major part we use is the root. The root contains many vitamins the flesh of the plant doesn’t contain. Did you know the potato and carrots are roots?? Here are a few roots eSutras Organics offers that have great health benefits: · eSutras Organics Bala Root – Literally meaning youth in Sanskrit, this herb is priceless for its multi various applications. A powerful cell nourishing and cell re-generating herb, Bala is used to maintain youth and vitality. Uses of this herb in Ayurveda are usually as a cardiac stimulant. ·
