A description of the experience

The Healing power of Herbal teas – Ceres Esplan

Elecampane, Inula helenium, Horseheal or wild sunflower is a huge plant that grows wild, although it is not thought to be a native plant in Britain.  Possibly, it was brought back with the Crusaders after they had found that it made an invaluable veterinary remedy for their horses.

It is a very tall, coarse leaved plant with heads of big yellow daisy like flowers and its roots used to be picked to be candied and eaten as a sweet, rather on the same lines as Angelica stems.

It can certainly be grown from root cuttings in large gardens and needs a shady damp situation where it can be decorative.

Elecampane tea, for humans, is made from the dried root.  It is almost a herbal specific for bronchitis and other hard dry coughs and is now thought to be strongly antibacterial
