Meadowsweet Products

Used throughout history in the British Isles, this herb has been utilized for culinary, medicinal and magical properties bringing together a plant that has many uses. Indigo Herbs brings you this aromatic herb in the form of a pure Meadowsweet herbal tea. When brewing this tea you will be able to see for yourself why it has been described as having a smell quite a lot like marzipan or even antiseptic liquid.

Meadowsweet has references in the works of Chaucer and dried plant remains found within Bronze Age burial mounds. The name Meadowsweet comes from the fact that it was used as an additive in making of mead. Meadowsweet used to be called ‘Medewurte’ with the name slowly changing over time. The Druids ranked the herb as one of their most sacred using it ritually as well as medicinally. These uses continued into the medieval period being used in monasteries with the addition of Meadowsweet being a favoured as strewing herb. One of Meadowsweets claims to fame is that it was used in the creation of Aspirin by isolating salicylic acid from the plant material.

Meadowsweet is an appealing herb in many ways: In the garden, it gives off a pleasant wintergreen and sweet almond fragrance, and its wrinkled, dark-green leaves with 3-foot reddish stalks give off a pleasing view. The flowers are small and white with a sometimes yellow tint.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice. The botanical ingredients can be made into an herbal tea by infusing the herb in boiling water. Use 1 cup of boiling water per person. Let the tea brew for 5 - 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy.

Serving:

2 -6g dried herb infused into 1 cup of boiling water taken 3 times per day

1 teaspoon equals 1 gram (1 tsp = 1g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs Meadowsweet loose Tea comes from plants that are grown for the specific use as tea. All plants are grown under supervision and soil checked regularly for heavy metals and toxins. When this perennial is at peak maturity the leaves and small stems are separated from the root and air dried in the shade so none of the chemical constituents are destroyed by the sun. The leaf cut is then tested again for any pollutants before being shipped. This process complies with GMP standards and has the Indigo Herbs seal of approval.

Shouldn't be taken by people suffering from asthma as it might cause the lungs to contract.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Meadowsweet Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken daily.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

The Meadowsweet plants used to make Indigo Herbs Meadowsweet Tincture undergo stringent checks to ensure all plants develop to their fullest potential whilst adhering to exceptionally high quality standards. After careful selection and cleaning the plant material undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.
