Our organically crafted Meadowsweet Oil is produced by low temperature maceration (solar-infusion) of the fragrant, creamy white flowers of the Filipendula ulmaria (syn Spiraea ulmaria) plant in organic cold pressed Sunflower Oil to extract its lipid soluble components.
Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) is part of the genus Spiraea and the family Rosaceae - in the same family as the rose.
The Meadowsweet is a perennial plant that grows in damp Meadows in Europe and blossoms in spring, producing small white flowers.
Its botanical name "Spiraea" refers to its fruits in the shape of a spiral, and its European name "queen of the meadow" refers to the way it can dominate the place where it grows.
REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
The most active ingredients in Meadowsweet are phenolic glycosides (the most important being Salicylates), Flavonoids, and Tannins.
The Salicylates in meadowsweet are Salicin, Salicylaldehyde, and Methyl salicylate - produced in its flowers to protect the plant from insects. Salicylates are aspirin-like substances used to reduce inflammation and relieve pain, for example in arthritic conditions.
The most important Flavonoids in meadowsweet oil - Rutin, Quercetin, and Kaempferol - help attract pollinating insects, protect the plant against environmental stress and microbial infection, and regulate cell growth.
Tannins have antioxidant and anti-microbial properties, which help protect against cellular damage and serve as a natural defense mechanism against microbial infections.
Meadowsweet oil is well known for its incredible mood-lifting abilities.
Specific: Use in persons with sensitivity to aspirin or other salicylate-containing drugs is cautioned.
