Origin: Bulgaria

Chickweed (Stellaria media) is a very common garden weed with small pointed leaves, hairy stems, and tiny white flowers. In folk medicine, many people apply chickweed externally on cuts and wounds, and it can also be applied to soothe itching or irritated skin. Some have also used the herb internally for rheumatism. It has high iron content, and is often used in support of people dealing with iron-deficiency anemia. Chickweed has also been used to soothe digestive issues and sore throats. It can be used as a diuretic, and it can help eliminate toxins via the kidneys.

Consume as a hot tea

Chickweed leaves can be steeped in hot water to make a tea that potentially relieves pain, reduces inflammation, and provides calming, soothing effects.

To make your own chickweed tea, add 1 1/2 cups (300 grams) of chickweed leaves to 3 cups (710 mL) of water and simmer over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes. Filter out the leaves and enjoy.

Old herbal folklore suggests enjoying a cup of this tea every 2–3 hours, though there’s no research to suggest how often you should drink it to reap its potential benefits.

2oz.

Avoid use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Also, when used in excess, chickweed can cause diarrhea and vomiting.
