Chickweed is a little-known herb that has a wide variety of medicinal and wellness uses. It is an edible plant that can be used as a table vegetable and also to create teas, or "green drinks". It is quite high in Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium as well.
Chickweed is a contact healing herb that relieves pain in addition to stimulating healing as soon as it's applied. It can be used for both internal and external healing and has even been used throughout history to stop bleeding in the stomach and bowels.
It is also an excellent addition to ointments, poultices, and salves. It not only decreases pain but also helps to reduce swelling such as with torn ligaments. It is especially useful for this when mixed with pure aloe vera juice which helps penetrate all three layers of the skin. This in turn allows the chickweed to reach the underlying damaged areas and begin removing the pain and starting the healing process.
Chickweed in tea form is excellent for use as an acne wash, and it can even be added to a bath to help with sores, rashes, boils, and burns.
This herb is also excellent for blood vessels and your circulatory system. Taken internally it helps purify the blood and carry out toxins and is even been known to help with blood poisoning. It also dissolves plaque in blood vessels, as well as dissolving fatty tumors and substances then removing them from the body.
Chickweed is also a little-known herb that helps with weight loss. It actually works as an appetite depressant and is used in many weight loss herbal combinations.
