Let All Tongues Flower
Not all flowers smell sweet. In fact, some downright stink.
For example, the titan arum, a huge flower native to Sumatra, smells like a rotting carcass. Flowers have unique smells because they attract different pollinators. For example, bees, moths and butterflies tend to be drawn to sweet smelling flowers, like roses, whereas insects like dung flies are attracted to flowers that smell like rotting meat.
Bats prefer flowers with musty odours and some beetles like ones with strong, fruity fragrances. Did You Know? The titan arum releases stinking steam at regular intervals to attract pollinators.

Silent, but deadly. Many pollinators and flowers have coevolved and are completely dependent on one another. Coevolution occurs when two or more species adapt to each other's changes. For example, some orchids' flowers have evolved to look and smell like the female of the wasp species that pollinates them. Male wasps try to mate with the flower, strike out, and move on. For my country, I rejoice at the beams of peace; but do not harbor a thought that mine is the joy of fear.

Best Wishes, Azita. This stuff really works! I thought the same way and dismissed my mother's advice, but this purple flower really makes my headaches go away and helps me go to sleep. From my experience, it is the best, healthiest alternative to marijuana, Excedrin, and Ambien.

It can also give you a burst of unfound energy. Be careful how you use it. Brewing it longer makes it stronger. Also, the apples and dry lemon is not neccessary. You can just mix it with your favorite tea to avoid the smell. They also don't taste bad alone - better than any medication or marijuana smell!

There are a lot of asides mostly about my big fat immigrant family , and the payoff isn't that good. Stick with me, though -- in this case the journey is the destination. Now then. Ever since I was a little kid, I've been getting canker sores.
I used to get them frequently then; now, one will spring up once every few years, usually stress-related. They hurt bad. And ever since I was a little kid, my dad has been suggesting the same cure, and for all those years, I've blown him off. Until now. A few months ago, I was under a lot of stress, mostly from work, but also from a bunch of personal goings-on.
It manifested itself physically -- I was waking up with backaches and headaches, and I was getting canker sores. Like, one would go away, and within weeks, another would pop up.
It was a downward spiral, because on top of everything else, the pain was keeping me from sleeping at night, causing all the troubles to be even worse.
