A new economic potential for Spanish needle (Bidens pilosa L.) is described by Prof. Ingelia White in her recently published Ethnopharmacognosy Series. Her BOT 205 (Ethnobotanical Pharmacognosy) and BOT 299 (Independent Study) students have identified the medicinal and nutritional values of this plant. Medicinal products such as tooth cleaning powder, gargle, chewing gum, fruit bites, lollipops. tea, pills, lozenges and soaps are introduced in the Pharmaceutical Products section of the booklet, while BOT 105 (Ethnobotany) students prepare delicious Spanish needle dishes as well as recipes are shared in the Food Pharmacy section.
