Chamerion angustifolium
Uses: Medicinal Duration: Perennial
(Epilobium angustifolium) One of the most under-appreciated healing plants of the world. Growing research interest is showing how amazing this plant really is. The First Nations people applied it on bruises, boils and infections to "draw out" infections, and took it as a tea for intestinal parasites. Today it is a clinically proven anti-inflammatory, more effective than cortisone cream for redness and irritation of the skin. It has analgesic, antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, as well as potent anti-aging properties. Of the more than 100 bioactive compounds found in fireweed research has focussed on a compound called oenothein B present at high levels in fireweed. This compound is an antioxidant and has potent immune modulatory effects, and has promise for prostate cancer and tumours. Fireweed is also a healer of mother nature, helping to begin the process of regeneration by moving in quickly after forest fires and clear-cutting. And top of all this, fireweed is stunningly beautiful with masses of pink flowers appearing from June to September.
