The Echinacea plant is a flowering plant in the daisy family Asteraceae. It is commonly found in eastern and central North America and was traditionally used by the Plains Indians for its extensive medicinal properties. In the early 1900’s it became a popular herbal remedy for the common cold.
Echinacea (purpurea/angustifolia) is regarded as one of the finest blood purifiers and cleansers. It has a profound effect on the lymphatic system by stimulating the production of white blood cells – the cells that are used to fight infection in the body. In this way it can help to improve resistance to and recovery from viral, fungal and bacterial infections. Echinacea is great to support the immune system, speed wound healing, treat colds and flu and fight infections.
