Meadowsweet

Meadowsweet is an amazing plant that has many uses, it can be found by rivers and streams and in damp areas. It always reminds me of elderflowers.

So what’s it good for?
The history of its uses have been for helping to repair the gut lining and reducing uric acid in the body (the thing that makes gout flare up) and it is rich in vitamin C, iron, calcium, magnesium and silica. It is said to help speed up the healing of connective tissue, reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
It was always used to bring a rash out such as chickenpox to speed up recovery.
These are just a few of its many uses.
