      Meadowsweet
      © Wystira Moonsinger

      Properties: Analgesic, Astringent, Relaxant, Anti-inflammatory,
      Diuretic, Antiseptic, Diaphoretic

      In the past, Meadowsweet was used by the Druids as a remedy for
      smallpox, dysentery, fevers, diarrhea, spitting of blood, and piles.
      It has also been used to relieve itching, burning eyes when the
      distilled liquid of meadowsweet flowers was used.

      Meadowsweet has qualities of asprin, without the side affects of
      asprin, which can have drastic affects on the lining of the stomach.
      Because meadowsweet contains tannins and mucilage, this herb is also
      known for its anti-inflammatory action that helps protect the stomach.

      Externally, meadowsweet flowers are high in vitamin C, iron,
      magnesium, and silica, which help speed the healing of connective
      tissue and reduce inflammation. The flowers are good to use on cuts,
      wounds, ulcers and skin irritations. The tannins in meadowsweet
      promote healing and help to stop bleeding. Use a decoction of the
      flowers as a mouthwash for mouth ulcers and bleeding gums.

      Internally, meadowsweet is excellent for any inflammatory problem
      in the stomach and bowels, acid indigestion, heartburn, gastritis,
      peptic ulcers, and hiatus hernia. Because of the astringent
      properties of meadowsweet, it is used for treating the mucus
      membranes, and for treating enteritis (inflammation of the
      intestines) and diarrhea. Its anti-inflammatory properties are good
      for treating infections, aches and pains, rheumatism, arthirits, and
      gout.

      As a diuretic, meadowsweet helps eliminate toxic wastes and uric
      acid, which may contribute to the inflammatory problems you are
      experiencing.

      To help relieve pain, meadowsweet's anagesic properties are good
      for headaches, relax spasms, and will help induce restful sleep.

      As a mild antiseptic, meadowsweet is good for cystitis and
      urethritis, fluid retention, and kidney problems.
