Does anyone know where I can buy blue lily of the nile extract locally and educate me on hw to use it?
Garden flower: This beautiful plant is mentioned in the harry potter series; some people are allergic to its leaves and in folk medicine it's been used to speed labor.

I have no idea who's selling it; sorry. ...Read more

It is important to let your doctor know that you are eating this though and PICA can be discussed in more detail.
