Meadowsweet Mania

Meadowsweet with its fluffy white flowers and long stems is standing tall and pretty at this time of year. In Ayurveda meadowsweet is used to reduce Pitta (Fire) in the body. With its light dry qualities it soothes anxious tense headaches and hot neck muscles on high Pitta days. The leaves can be used in salads and mixed with marjoram and nettle to make a marvel tisane for painful joints and fever as a result of inflammatory conditions.
