Milfoil is a great herb that grows in Europe and in Asia and other parts of the world.
Looking a little bit like dill Milfoil has great astringent properties making it good for skin wounds, eczema, burns, and hemorrhoids.
It also contains salicylic acid which is wonderful for controlling pain and lowering fevers ... this is the same compound found in aspirin... and Milfoil is a good anti-inflammatory agent too!
And like aspirin Milfoil improves circulation of the heart and cardiovascular system in general. But unlike aspirin Milfoil is good for the stomach helping to lower gastric secretions.
Some compounds found in Milfoil are also good for MS, and for helping the regeneration of spinal tissues. And some say that Milfoil is great for leukemia.
But almost everyone will agree that Milfoil will help end a cold in about 24 hours when taken as a tea 3 or 4 times a day.
Also good for asthma, bronchitis, and other lung conditions plus it also helps with arthritis and headaches.
And Milfoil has been used successfully for treatment of urinary tract inflammation and PMS.
