Remember that this plant is under partial protection and even if you find it somewhere in a wasteland, you shouldn't pick it up. Dwarf everlast, which you will find in herbal stores, is usually from crops.
- Essential Oils
- Waxes (covering plant hairs)
What kind of properties does it have?
Bactericidal - this is the effect of dwarf everlast oil, which inhibits the development of Staphylococcus aureus, E. Coli and Candida.
- Detoxifying for the liver
- Beneficial effect on the digestive system
- Diuretic (removes swelling)
Interestingly, this effect is shown by various substances that can be found in this herb, so its action is synergistic. For example - both flavonoids and essential oils have a bactericidal effect. The choleretic effect, so characteristic of dwarf everlast, is not as rapid as with other preparations. Professor Różański writes that the dwarf everlast will not be useful for people who suffer from biliary colic, because its effect will be too slow.
Who can take it?
If you have health problems, you should consult a doctor before using dwarf everlast.
Here are some examples of the medicinal use of this plant:
- Liver failure
- Problems with gall stones
- Inflammation of the bile ducts
- Poisoning and swelling
- Sore throat
- Skin problems
Many skin diseases result from the fact that our body is polluted and cleansing the liver improves its condition.
The least effective preparation of dwarf everlast is herb infusion. The extract and tincture are much stronger, and if you cannot prepare them at home, it is better to simply make a decoction of this herb.
The decoction is different from infusion that the herbs are heated with hot water to boiling and then boiled for a few minutes. Then it is removed from the heat and filtered. Pay attention to the preparation of dwarf everlast in this way, if it is in the form of an addition to other herbs, otherwise you will not get the most out of its properties. It can also be used as an oil extract on linseed oil or olive oil and also brewed in milk with honey.
Is the using of the Dwarf everlast effective and proven?
Dwarf everlast is located in the Pharmacopoeia as a herbalist, which proves that its effectiveness has been confirmed.
Dwarf everlast is definitely not such a media plant as, for example, milk thistle or rockrose, but I think it is worth taking advantage of its properties. If you suffer from indigestion or bile ducts problems, it is worth trying to see if it works for you.
