What a lady fern can do for you?
This plant is very familiar to all of us-right? It is called 'Lady fern', an ornamental plant. We would have never thought its decorative purpose.
However, it is a medicinal plant. The juices of the leaves of Lady Fern will cure the stinging feeling caused when we accidentally touch nettles.
The Africans crush the leaves on their palms to heal minor cut injuries.
I believe some species of Lady Fern leaves are used to make organic tea to cure cough. I am yet to check on this news bit that I read in a local magazine long back.
