Vascular Tissue of Trees

Published June 29, 2020 by tindertender

Striking image of a recently burned tree, exposing its vascular tissue, the xylem and phloem.

A tree’s vascular system carries water and minerals from the roots up to the leaves, and photosynthesized food back down to the rest of the tree.

Interesting fact: Trees have no muscles (or nervous system) so all of this movement is powered by turgor pressure, which is controlled by stomata in the leaves that open and close as needed.

Cedar

Improves Respiratory Organs

Cedar Tea: Improves the functioning of the respiratory organs, alleviates the state of health in cases of bronchitis and pneumonia. It has an anti-inflammatory effect in cases of rheumatism and osteochondrosis.

It improves circulation, and has a general strengthening effect on the organism.

The aroma of cedar fills the spirit with a sensation of stability and safety, is conductive to reflection about eternal values. Cedar is used as a form of protection in fasting and in the sweat lodge.

Cedar needles are capable of decontaminating the air.

The smoke of cedar carries prayers to the Creator.

Preparations: Add 2 or 3 Tsp. to a pot of water (2 or 4 cups) bring to a boil then simmer until water is tea coloured. Strain before drinking, add honey to flavour.
