Chickweed (Stellaria media)
The Chickweed herb lives up to its name, being a mostly feminine herb. It acts as a micro-circulatory stimulant for the skin. It's been traditionally used to treat acne, abscessed skin, eczema, cuts, minor burns, rashes, as well as duodenal and peptic ulcers. It does this thanks to its chemical properties.
Phytochemicals are the most complex pharmacological drugs on the planet. All of the information needed to construct medicinal alkaloids using biological resources is stored in the plants DNA. They demonstrate both medicinal and psychoactive properties. Certain ones are soluble in water, while others are in alcohol. Below is a list of some of the chemicals made by the Chickweed herb.
Chickweed is commonly infused with marshmallow root ( Althaea officinale - scientific name ). It's been used in the form of a bandage, or mixed with clay to provide a drawing and drying effect topically. It also has nutritional value being an excellent source of vitamins A, D, B complex, C, rutin, iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese,sodium, copper, and silica.
Chickweed makes a fine ingredient in homemade topicals, salves, or even shampoos. There are lots of "old school" soaps, shampoos and other hygiene
recipes out there. Before the industrialized modern world, these necessities were always made by hand and from scratch. Yucca
root too was used by Indians on as a shampoo. Considering the importance of safe and effective natural ingredients should be more common today. If we
could just source out all known common toxic ingredients in the worlds hygiene products, foods, etc, maybe we could all live healthier. Chickweed is a good start.
The herb can be used in many ways. A tea can be made quickly for internal use. If you want something a bit more potent then go with a tincture. A tincture is made out of high proof alcohol. The herb is soaked for a minimum of one month, and the remaining liquid is drained off and stored. Alcohol can extract certain compounds that water can not. Tinctures have a very long shelf life. Finally, decoctions are made by boiling roots and barks for around thirty minutes minimum.
