Echinacea gives us the power of late summer magic.
Imagine a field of tall echinacea, a wave of pink with the sounds of bees, birds and butterflies, all enjoying its abundance. It is a tough hardy perennial plant that thrives in extreme temperatures and can survive cold winters.
Echinacea is a mighty and versatile herb full of life and energy. Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy this herb and discover its ability to help with pain and inflammation. Science has found that consuming echinacea (whether through tea or extracts) sets off an anti-inflammatory process, which reduces oral pain, sore throats, and even UTIs.
Plant it, let it flourish and it will propagate each season giving you a wonderful herbal harvest.
Echinacea is known for its effective treatment of respiratory conditions, healing a sore throat, and many immune-boosting benefits. Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy this herb and discover its ability to help with pain and inflammation. It’s bright purple flowers bloom in mid-summer. What else can this herb do? We’ll explore all of this and more in this week’s episode.
