“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” - Albert Einstein

Lily of the Valley is a member of the Asparagaceae family (and not the Liliaceae family, as you might think), Its scientific name is Convallaria majalis, and it is found across the Northern Hemisphere. It is toxic, and it contains a range of cardiac glycosides. These are compounds which can cause congestive heart failure, and the plants produce them as a defense.
