Meadowsweet, also known as meadow honeysuckle, is a species of plant from the rose family. Meadowsweet is widespread throughout Europe and grows on nutrient-rich, moist soils. For this reason, it is mainly found on river banks, streams and damp meadows. The meadowsweet owes its name to its former use as a sweetener for wine and mead.
In naturopathy, it is mainly the meadowsweet herb, which is obtained from the flowering, dried stem tips of the plant, and the meadowsweet flowers that are used. The meadowsweet herb is used especially for colds, as the plant is said to have antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties are due to phenolic glycosides, which are converted into essential oils by drying, and above all to the flavonoids, tannins and salicylate compounds contained in the plant.
Use and dosage
For feverish colds, we recommend using a tea made from meadowsweet herb. For this purpose, pour one teaspoon of meadowsweet herb over a cup (about 150 ml) of boiling hot water. Let the tea steep for 10-15 minutes and then strain it. You can drink up to three cups of tea a day until the symptoms subside.
