#Sassafras root bark, shelled #Cardamom, #Kava kava root, #Cassia #Cinnamon, #Lobelia, and #Ginger.  All ready to be ground up and infused into Almond oil to make our massage oil that smells like the best cookie on the planet.  Kava and Lobelia deeply relax the muscles.  Ginger, Sassafras, Cassia and Cardamom stimulate circulation and lymphatic flow along with their various aromatherapeutic properties.

The flower of "Wild Ginger," Asarum canadense.  This plant is unrelated to the culinary ginger but the roots smell and taste surprisingly similar.  It has some toxicity and populations are threatened in many areas in Appalachia, so it is often best to leave it alone.

A favorite plant of mine.  Somehow I've never eaten the leaves.  The seeds are also edible and can even be popped.
