Description More Information
 
Results of archeological digs indicate that Native Americans may have used echinacea for more than 400 years to treat infections and wounds and as a general "cure-all." Throughout history people have used echinacea to treat scarlet fever, syphilis, malaria, blood poisoning, and diphtheria. Although this herb was popular during the 18th and 19th centuries, its use began to decline in the United States after the introduction of antibiotics. Echinacea preparations became increasingly popular in Germany throughout the 20th century. In fact, most of the scientific research on echinacea has been conducted in Germany.

Several laboratory and animal studies suggest that echinacea contains active substances that enhance the activity of the immune system, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and have hormonal, antiviral, and antioxidant effects. For this reason, professional herbalists may recommend echinacea to treat urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast (candida) infections, ear infections (also known as otitis media), athlete's foot, sinusitis, hay fever (also called allergic rhinitis), as well as slow-healing wounds.

The above information was obtained from the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Beautiful & useful flowers September 13, 2016
Reviewer: Linda from Chicago, IL United States  
Just got the order and it's not quite planting season yet. But I'm very excited to plant these. It's only 4 stars because I haven't planted anything yet. I'll be happy to update when I do.
A neighbor planted these all over our neighborhood on the parkway. Yes, in Chicago. It's a welcome addition.
Packaging the seeds come in also look like it's of good quality. My clumsiness will not destroy it like I manage to do with the paper seed packets you find elsewhere. My order arrived in a timely manner and so far, all is well.
