Sick In The Head? There's A Pink Cure!
Yes, I was an Army wife, and some might have said I was 'Sick in the Head', but a couple of Tylenol sure worked better than a 'Bag of Oats Pillow'. Sure makes me glad I was a 20th Century Army Wife and not a 19th Century Frontier Army Wife.
You might be wondering what 'Sick In The Head' has to do with my Pink Saturday Post about Valerian! Well, I found this stand of Valerian growing in The Frontier Army Wife...Mrs. Alice Grierson's Herb Garden.
Little did I know that this bit of Pink was one of Alice's Home Remedy Herbs. I was just so amazed it had survived the Boots of the Buffalo Soliders, the Comanches, the summer of 1875, and this summer's wildfires which burned thousands of acres in the Davis Mountains and came very near Old Fort Davis.
Okay...back to 'The Pink Cure'... here you see a pan of dried Valerian on the kitchen counter, and although Alice didn't include the Valerian Neuralgia Cure Recipe in her Cookbook, I'm sure it was grown and used for that purpose or perhaps for her Homemade Perfume.
