Re: VMS -- Botany (f51r) Henbane

This may be just a coincidence, but the most common medicinal theme that I have
noticed in the study of herbs found in the VMS is their application to the ailments of
the eyes. It may just be that the ancients applied many different ointments to
deseased eyes in hopes of finding cures.

Henbane itself would be more useful as a poison, as your links indicate. Deadly nightshade, henbane... interesting... :-)
