Apricot: The crushed fruit has been used as a facial mask to soften the skin.

In Chinese medicine, apricot kernels are used as an antitussive and antiasthmatic and in treating tumours.

Sunflower: Was used by the indigenous population of America to help with rheumatism, whereas in Russia the leaves and flowers were used for the treatment of chest problems, bronchitis, coughs and even malaria. The dried leaves have also been smoked like tobacco. The petals can be steeped in water to create hair dye and the stalks are used in papermaking. The oil burns well and may be used in oil lamps. It has also been used in the manufacture of resins and soap. Sunflower seeds, together with a decoction of morning glory are used as a sacrament by Iroquois Indians in Spring and Autumn rituals.
