Coltsfoot Leaf

£ 2.59

Coltsfoot is a perennial from the Asteraceae family. Due to the characteristic shape of the leaves, it is also called a horse's foot or donkey's foot - they resemble hoof prints. Supports the work of the upper and lower respiratory tract. Substances contained in coltsfoot soothe inflammation, dilute residual secretion and trigger the expectorant reflex.

Latin name - Tussilago farfara.

How does coltsfoot work?
What makes coltsfoot help in getting rid of respiratory tract infections is primarily the presence of mucous substances and tannins. Thanks to them:

- has a disinfecting and astringent effect
- coats the mucous membranes with a protective layer, which reduces the feeling of scratching and dryness in the throat and facilitates expectoration
- soothes irritations
- relaxes smooth muscles
- Formerly, coltsfoot was also used topically to wash wounds and other skin ailments such as burns, ulcers and abscesses.
- It can also be helpful for lactating women, contributing to the regeneration of cracked nipples and reducing their pain, burning and itching.

When should you reach for coltsfoot?
Coltsfoot leaves collected in spring and summer are used to prepare a decoction. It will bring relief in coughs of various origins, upper respiratory tract infections, as well as asthma. It can also be used externally, in compresses for bruises and hematomas or for washing the skin.

It will work well in combination with other herbs - especially those that are also a source of coating and protective mucus and have antibacterial and antiviral properties. Therefore, coltsfoot properties may be even more effective, e.g. in combination with thyme, rosemary, chamomile.

Great - bought primarily to add to homemade cat toys in place of catnip, the cats are definitely keen on it so far. 25g turned out to be more than I was expecting - shown here in a 190ml / 8oz jar, with tealight for scale. There was quite a lot of powder in the packet where I'm guessing it got battered during shipping, but that's fine for my purposes. Hopefully going to try it in tea soon as well, it seems like excellent quality.
