Day 89 – Magic whiskers.
Cat whiskers aren’t only on our furry friends but in the plant world too. Not just curious looking, the Cat Whisker plant is also used for medicinal uses too. For centuries it has been used in Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Dried or fresh the plant is used in tea form, said to be great for kidney disorders, and help with the kidney stones. Besides medicinal purposes, it is also a haven for bees and butterflies, one of the magic wonders of the tropics.
