chamomile

Chamomile is one of the most popluar medicinal plants in Europe. The herb can be found in almost every kitchen cupboard, and rightly so, because Chamomile is a true jack-of-all-trades. 

The true Chamomile (also called Matricaria Chamomilla) belongs to the sunflower family (Asteraceae), and is related to other known wild herbs such as dandelion, marigold and wormwood. The characteristic aroma of Matricaria Chamomilla can easily fill a room, distinguishing itself from the false Chamomile.

Chamomile tea, which is made from the dried flowers and leaves of the plant, often proves to be one of the most effective remedies for digestive issues.  Chamomile is also often prepared as a tinctures and added to baths, in order to relieve inflamed, sore and itchy skin.

The next time you need to restock the natural skin care on your vanity, prepare yourself a little list of what to look for in your new products.

Is it really so simple that you’re going to go out and just select any product off the shelf because it says „natural“? Probably not. You already know what you are looking for in a product. Most of us want it to feel a certain way or smell a certain way, but undoubtedly, we ALL want it to help us look good and maintain or improve our skin.

2. Know your preservatives
Synthetic preservatives are more than just suspe...

Echinacea

There are three Echinacea species used medicinally - Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea pallida, and Echinacea purpurea. This plant is native to Northern America, and was used extensively by Great Plains Indian tribes. Later settlers were introduced to wonderful medicinal properties of Echinacea. Some of the most common uses of this herb are immune system stimulation and prevention of infections.

Echinacea was extensively studied in Germany. Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea pallida were official in the US National Formulary from 1916 to 1950.

Truth revealed

Demi-gods in white; powerful, respected, trustworthy – many doctors identify with this role. These definitions of the modern doctor have risen from the human desire to lend a helping hand in instances where there is a physical or mental health emergency. People associate this helping hand with doctors or hospitals because of historical events such as the discovery of „Insulin“ in 1923. In those days the main focus was on finding and producing cures for the human race. This heart felt desire to help is what allowed the inventors of insulin to sell their precious patent for the symbolic price of 1 US-Dollar to the University of Toronto.
