Rosehips peels: During the 2nd World War, the military ingested the fruits of the rosehips as a natural way to obtain vitamin C. This is because these fruits contain a high amount of this vitamin, essential for strengthening the defences. Therefore, they would be able to maintain their immune system resistance in the face of the circumstances of the conflict. In addition to this function, vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen, allowing, at the same time, the normal functioning of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, skin, gums and teeth. And even in the protection of cells against undesirable oxidations.
Blue Cornflower petals: Scientifically called "Centaurea cyanus", the cornflower is an annual herbaceous plant of the Asteraceae and Compositae family that develops a blue to violet flower 2 to 3 centimetres in diameter. Its flowering period occurs between May to September. Cornflower is one of the few plants that can generate around 7,000 seeds per year. Part of its production takes place on vacant or poorly worked land in regions of the European and Asian continents. Able to reach more than one meter in height, this plant prefers breeding in corn, wheat and barley production fields.
The Blue Cornflower flower is known for its beneficial contribution to treating gastrointestinal disorders, even as in the regulation of digestion. In addition, it can help disinfect wounds and oral infections (thrush, cold sores, conjunctivitis, among others). The properties of cornflower are laxative, aperitif, tonic, diuretic and antibiotic. Cornflower petals may also promote good blood circulation, improve vision and reduce fever.
Lemongrass: contains analgesic, antidepressant and antibacterial properties. It can help fight excessive sweating and the effects on the athlete's foot. You can also use it as an insect repellent. If you are suffering from muscle pain and arthritis, you can soak some compresses in lemongrass tea and apply them to the affected areas. In Suriname (a South American country), this wonderful herb is used to fight cough, asthma, headaches and fever. While in the West, it is used as a digestive tonic and natural calming of the nervous system.
