Just For Fun: Herbs of the Zodiac

| 2/25/2011 12:40:31 PM

S.CollinsAt the end of the day, I sit down at my computer one last time to check my email, surf the web and, lastly, read my horoscope. Yes, unlike most of the country, I prefer to read my horoscope at the end of the day just to see if the information was true. One night, I decided to figure out where these so-called fortunes come from; I found some interesting information. According to the article Healing Herbs of the Zodiac from Ayurvedic Cure, every zodiac sign also has corresponding herbs. Who knew? Check it out:

Pisces (February 19 to March 20): Pisces are more prone to feet ailments such as corns, bunions, warts and aches. This zodiac's herbs include irish moss, which can curb such problems. Try our Irish Moss Seaweed Lotion to soothe aching feet.

Aries (March 21 to April 19): Aries are susceptible to headaches and jaw and mouth problems. Aries should use nettle to improve circulation and ease pain.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20): Taurus suffer from neck and throat problems. Coltsfoot and sage will help Taurus' sore throat.
