Add to favourites
Native to Europe, Meadowsweet grows easily in damp places, preferring ditches and the banks of streams and rivers. Meadowsweet has a perennial reaching of 1.5 m, with toothed leaves and clusters of creamy, scented flowers. The flowering tops and leaves contain salicylates that reduce inflammation. In ancient times, this plant was used against painful joints and rheumatism. At the beginning of the 19th century, an Italian chemist extracted salicylic acid from Meadowsweet, an anti-inflammatory substance, promised a great future under the name aspirin. Diuretic, astringent and tonic, it is often used to assist the functions of elimination of the organism, to calm and relieve the skin of irritations and to regulate the secretion of sebum. The main components of the blossoms / leaves are Flavonol glycosides (approximately 1%), mainly glycosides of quercetin, Phenolic glycosides (Salicylates), Volatile oil (salicylaldehyde), Polyphenols (tannins). Cosmetically Meadowsweet extracts are used due to their anti-inflammatory, antirheumatic, astringent effects in skin care and especially for firming and slimming treatment.
