    Here is a Word document with 84 medicinal plants for your perusal. I make no claims about the validity of the information. I'm only posting for your information. Use your own judgement on whether the claims are valid.

    Awesome post! There are also some online databases with extracts from the King's American Dispensatory which I find useful if you have a question about what a plant might be used for. Look for Henriette's Herbal. It's best to practice identifiying a few useful plants - get good at it - then expand from there. Plants can be tricky to identify. This site has a cool page for some of that too. I am so glad I found yall.

    Some of the terms and Family names are antiquated, and no longer in use, but if you cross reference with newer material, you'll find this file very useful! Thanks Rick!

    It is also a good Idea, to check and see what plant are native to ones area. Many medical plants have the same use but not all grow in the same region.
