Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria)
The name comes from the Anglo-Saxon "meodu-swete", which means "mead sweetener". Since ancient times, it has been used to flavor mead, beer and wine.

Meadowsweet is a perennial belonging to the rose family, i.e. the same as e.g. hawthorn, meadowsweet, wild rose, as well as wild strawberry or quince.

Fun fact:
This delicate flower was used to attract love, peace and happiness and was especially popular in love spells and potions. Adding this flower to a wedding bouquet was supposed to bring joy and blessing to the bride!

Benefits of using meadowsweet
Meadowsweet has a long and distinguished history of medicinal use and is mentioned in some of the most famous literary works of the Middle Ages.
- Soothes and protects the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract and gastric mucosa while reducing acidity.
- Studies have shown that meadowsweet may also help heal chronic ulcers and prevent the development of gastric lesions.
- It is used to treat heartburn, acidity, gastritis and peptic ulcers. Its mild astringent action is useful in the treatment of diarrhea.
- Studies have shown the immunomodulating properties of meadowsweet. Thanks to the content of salicylates, they strengthen the body's immunity and have a disinfecting effect.
- All parts of the plant contain high levels of phenolic compounds, including a newly discovered flavonoid glycoside called ulmarioside, which is unique to Meadowsweet.

Application Suggestions:

Infusion: 1 tablespoon of herb pour 1 cup of boiling water or milk; brew for 20 minutes, strain; drink 3 times a day.

- Meadowsweet has also found its application in the cosmetics industry. It can be used in shampoos and conditioners for hair prone to greasy and falling out.
- Meadowsweet also has astringent, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and soothing properties, which is why it can be used in people with acne, oily and combination skin.
- Thanks to the pleasant smell reminiscent of almonds, meadowsweet can be used in aromatherapy, e.g. for a bath with the addition of a previously prepared infusion. Such a bath will have a relaxing, relaxing and calming effect.

However, meadowsweet should be avoided by asthmatics and people with hypersensitivity to salicylates (e.g. aspirin), as they are found in significant amounts in the chemical composition of the plant.

For the same reasons, the recommended dose of the herb should not be exceeded, as it may result in unpleasant side effects (e.g. digestive disorders, constipation). Pregnant and lactating women.

Really enjoyable bedtime tea, and excellent service.

Valerian Root
E.H. (Doncaster, GB)

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.
