The ash tree belongs to the olive family, which comprises about 600 species, of which only a few occur in Central Europe on moist and nutrient-rich soils.
In naturopathy, ash can be used both internally and externally. It has a laxative, astringent, diuretic, diaphoretic and tonic effect.
Responsible for the positive effect of ash leaves is the interplay of the ingredients contained, such as tannins, flavonoids like rutin, secoiridoid glucosides, phenolic carboxylic acids, triterpenes, iridoid bitter substances and derivatives of hydroxycinnamic acid. The HMPC (Herbal Medicinal Product Committee) has classified ash leaves as a traditional herbal medicinal product due to its versatile ingredients.
Use and dosage of ash leaves
To make an invigorating tea, pour 250 ml of water over two heaped teaspoons of ash leaves. Bring the tea to the boil, let it steep for 3 - 10 minutes and then strain. If you have urinary tract problems, you can also combine ash leaves with other medicinal plants such as hawthorn root, nettle or birch leaves.
Drink 3 cups of ash leaf tea per day for colds. For rheumatism and gout, we recommend drinking 2 cups a day for 14 days. If you would like to use ash leaves to flush out the urinary tract, you must drink plenty of liquid in addition to the tea.
