Description: Our Meadowsweet tincture is an infused alcoholic solution, at a ratio of 1:3 (25% alcohol). This herbaceous perennial is a native of Europe and reaches a height of 1-2 metres. The stems are rutted and have a burgundy-red hue when mature; the pinnate leaves are dark-green on the upper side with a pale downy coating on the underside with serrated margins. The flowers form irregular branched cymes of wispy, creamy-white inflorescences.
Brief History: Culpeper in his 17th century herbal recommended that Meadowsweet could ‘take away the fits of quartan agues’ and that ‘it speedily helps those that are troubled with the cholic, being boiled in wine, and, with a little honey taken warm, it opens the belly’. Culpeper also advocated the use of the herb outwardly as a poultice or compress to help heal ulcers and fistulous.
SUGGESTED USEAdd the tincture to lotions, soaps, creams and tonics for the skin, where astringent and anti-inflammatory properties are required to be added to the preparation. Add to water to make an astringent wash for minor cuts and abrasions. No other non-medicinal uses are known for the tincture of this herb.
