Good morning we have a new herb highlight we're going to talk about.
Before I start let me just say that you should always always do your own research!
The information provided here is just the the tip of the iceberg when it comes down to medicinal plants and what their benefits are.
Today we are talking about Queen of the meadow (Meadowsweet, Filipendula ulmaria)
This wonderful herb also known as Nature's Aspirin it's great for reducing inflammation and relieving pain.
Some of its properties are:
Inside of the queen of meadow there is a type of substance makes it operate the same as aspirin. Giving it the name, Nature's Aspirin it is called salicylates. This herb does not have blood thinning agents in it unlike the OTC aspirin.
Some warnings are! If you are allergic to aspirin to don't use this herb! Also if you take aspirin daily do not use this herb (one or the other).
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding do not take this herb!!!!
I had a cup of this tea this morning and I have to say my back pain eased up really quickly. Even though I did sweeten it with a little honey. It is very bitter!!! Would probably pair well with some orange to help cut the bitter!
I am using the leaves and the stems.
