    Carnivorous health products

    Yeah, I know, I spend way too much time on Ebay here's some herbal health products made from Drosera plants I found while looking at plants:

    I came across an ad for Cypredium orchid medicine as well but misplaced the link.

    And the fluids of an unopened Nepenthes pitcher supposedly help rashes and what not.

    Yeah I was in CA one time and went into this like health food store thing, and they had a big wall of plant remedies, and one of them was D. rotundifolia. I was pretty surprised when I saw that. Can't remember what it was for tho...

    One of the products I linked was D. Rotundifolia tablets for cough & mucus relief. The others don't say what their use is for.

    I had also heard that Pinguicula leaves had been used at one time or another to enzymatically curdle milk in the making of cheese products (a "folkier" version of rennet, I suppose) . . .
