About Chickweed Macerate
The medicinal properties of Chickweed have been used since folk medicine. It was used as a remedy for itchy skin conditions. In the 17th century, herbalist John Gerard 1545-1612, used this plant as a remedy for scabies. From the Middle Ages, Chickweed is described as food, raw, in soup or cooked like spinach. The herb and its seeds were - and still are, loved by chickens and birds.

Older ladies drank the juice to prevent obesity. In the Middle Ages this herb was called Hennebeet or Morsus gallinae. Stellaria means little star, derived from the shape of the flower. Media means the middle or average.

Properties: The above-ground parts are used for medicinal and culinary purposes. It makes little difference whether the plant flowers or not. The plant grows all year round but is richest in ingredients between May and July. Chickweed is relatively unknown as a medicinal plant. This is unjustified, but it does mean that little research has been done into the medicinal effect. Little scientific research has been done on its effects on the skin. The research that has been done shows that the antiviral protein Stellarmedine A has an inhibitory effect on the Herpes simplex virus type 2. In addition, the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect of the plant has also been proven.

Empirical experiences have been well described over the centuries, with an emphasis on external use in all kinds of skin conditions.

Application: Chickweed is a very versatile plant for the care of the skin and can be used for almost all skin conditions. The effect is almost immediate, especially with itching and irritation. This applies to both external itching and internal itching associated with serious conditions, such as lymphatic cancers. Chickweed can be used for complaints of the lower respiratory tract; it has an expectorant and soothing effect on the lung tissue.

Use: Other than itching and irritation, Chickweed is traditionally used for wound treatment and scarring. In addition, it appears to have a whitening effect on the skin, making it cosmetically interesting for age spots and freckles. Internally it supports the cleansing effect of the liver, which in turn has a positive effect on skin disorders. The plant contains active ingredients that promote skin recovery, such as saponins, minerals, flavonoids, polysaccharides, and minerals. Chickweed can be applied to open wounds. Chickweed is ideal as a base for cream or soap.
