The Mountain Laurel - Simply Pleasant!

Updated: Feb 14, 2023


The simplicity and the beauty of the Mountain Laurel plant's flowers and it's popularity throughout the Eastern United States is the inspiration for this design.


In addition to their beautiful flowers, the Mountain Laurel is a popular flowering plant with a wonderful history. Per Wikipedia "the Native American Cherokee have and continue to use the plant as an analgesic, placing an infusion of leaves on scratches made over location of the pain. They also rub the bristly edges of ten to twelve leaves over the skin for rheumatism, crush the leaves to rub brier scratches, use an infusion as a wash "to get rid of pests", use a compound as a liniment, rub leaf ooze into the scratched skin of ball players to prevent cramps, and use a leaf salve for healing.


The wood has been used for carving along with using the branches for hand railings. It is also suitable for wreaths, furniture, bowls and other household items. It was used in the early 19th century in wooden-works clocks. It can also be used for handrails or guard rails."
