If you read nothing else here, read this!

Hey all. I am truly blessed to have so many awesome visitors, and I really appreciate all the traffic. Hopefully, what I am learning and sharing is helping you and others as well.
I was checking my stats and I have had several referring links from here I was intriged and went to the site.
It seems like a nice place for RPG, complete with lessons and homework a la Hogwart’s School from Harry Potter.
I started wondering though, some of the potions and other what-nots the students there are making are using ideas gleaned from this site. Which is great! Glean away! 🙂
But I want to make something CRYSTAL CLEAR:
Many plants are toxic. Some will make you sick. Some will even kill you. Painfully.
Essential oils are NOT to be taken internally unless you have spoken with a licensed aromatherapist (which I am not) and your medical doctor.
Some oils and herbs are abortificants, meaning they cause miscarriage. Some induce hallucinations. Some induce other deadly side effects.
Now, I would feel terrible if someone cooked up a concoction using ideas from my posts, and then died because of it.
One in particular I saw involved ingesting mistletoe. BIG NO-NO FOLKS!
So make up your potions to your heart’s content…but be sure you don’t eat or drink anything without the assistance of a licensed herbologist and/or medical doctor.
Now, before anyone gets their knickers in a bunch…Yes I know its a role playing group. But still…I feel the need to put it out there.
Don’t ingest the stuff folks. Seriously.
Ok, now glean away and play nicely.
