Self Heal - The Ripple Effect - Prunella Vulgaris

"Prunella vulgaris is a perennial herb native in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America, and is common in most temperate climates. It was introduced to many countries in the 1800s and has become invasive in the Pacific Islands, including Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii. In Ireland, it is generally abundant. This herb also grows in Kashmir and is locally known as kalyuth. It is boiled in water, which used to wash and bathe in order to relieve muscle pain."


The Prunella Vulgaris edible plant is used as an antibiotic for hard to heal wounds from minor cuts to internal bleeding, cold flu, canker sores and sore throats. This plant can treat diarrhea, high blood pressure, fevers, weaknesses of the heart and liver, treats anxiety, depression and mood swings. The prunella helps to regulate insulin and blood sugar levels. It fights allergies and inflammation, strengthens kidneys and reduces diabetes. It treats summer heat stroke and summer rashes. The Prunella Vulgaris is a great remedy for dehydration and to cleanse the body.

Balance and centering can be attained by ingesting this plant. It will remind you to come to your center because, from there, a small change can make a huge difference in your life which will create a ripple effect outward.

Here is a recipe I found online. I have not tried it yet. Always check with your personal practitioner before trying something new. Some natural herbs may cause a reaction based on your chemical make-up and/or can have a negative effect on any medication you may be taking. 

Boil the prunella for about 3 to 4 hours, add brown sugar and refrigerate to make tea. It can also be cooked and added to soups or salads.
