Picture Perfect: WET

The yellow shines so much brighter
— no matter the rain,
nor gloom or doom!

The oil extracted from lilies has healing and softening properties. Especially, when the lily fragrance oil is mixed with that of Calendula aka Pot Marigold works wonderful for very sensitive skin. One can use this oil for massage, in a bath, after a bath, for babies, dry cuticles, and elbows, as a facial moisturizer, under-eye oil and hot-oil treatment.

Some of the lilies are edible even such as Lilium bulbiferous ’Orange lily’ — its bulbs are edible tasting sweet and mealy; these lilies make very fair eating and can be used as a substitute to potato!! Other lilies have medicinal properties such as Lilium candidum ’Madonna lily’ — its bulb is employed for medicinal purposes, having highly demulcent and also astringent properties.

Lilium henryi ’Henry’s lily’ or as it is also known Tiger lily relieve congestion, and the nausea and vomiting of pregnancy  and also, Lilium japonicum ’Krameri’ is  nourishing and useful in diseases of the chest. Lilium martagon ’Martagon lily’ or as it is also called, ’Turk’s cap lily’ their bulb has diuretic, emmenagogue, emollient and expectorant properties. They are used to relieve heart diseases, pain in the cardiac region and angina pectoris.*

These fine wet yellow lilies are my contribution for the Picture Perfect theme WET.

Keep so grand and safe. Rii :))

  1. Moi Rii!

    Rakastan liljankukkia! Olen aloittamassa omaa blogiani, johon laitoin lijankukan aloituskirjoitukseeni mukaan. Tein sen eilen. Tänään löysin nämä sivusi! Olen hämmästynyt.

    Ja hämmästystäni lisää se mitä kirjoitin sinulle “about me Rii :)” -kohtaan.
