Honeysuckle Flowers, Medicinal - Dried Herb
Since 659 AD, Honeysuckle has been considered one of the most important herbs for releasing poisons from the body & for reducing fever.
The three main parts of the honeysuckle plant that are used medicinally are the flowers, flower buds & stems.The flowers have been used to make syrup that has been used as an expectorant for bad coughs & asthma.
Honeysuckle is used by herbalists to clear away toxic substances, also to kill or inhibit the action of germs. It is used to cool & reduce fever and heat. It reduces ulcers, sore throat, skin infections and clears the lungs & strengthens general health.
The flowers can be infused to create a hot tea that can be used as an expectorant. Honeysuckle is often combined with other herbs (including cowslip & mulberry) to create a tea that is used to treat coughs & mild symptoms of asthma.
Because it is a natural antibiotic, honeysuckle can also be used for infections caused by staph or strep bacteria. Honeysuckle should be used for acute illnesses. It is not meant to be used in the treatment of chronic conditions.
Honeysuckle is useful in reducing rashes from skin diseases and poison oak, in which case it should be used as a poultice. For cuts or abrasions that could become infected, an external honeysuckle infusion can be applied.
