The parts of the meadowsweet plant that grow above ground are typically used to make herbal medicine – sometimes being ground down to form a finely milled powder. It’s best known for its potential to kill pain and for its anti-inflammatory actions.
Meadowsweet powder is highly versatile and its proposed health benefits can be captured and used in capsules, tinctures, infusion or external applications. Meadowsweet powder captures the tannin content of the herb. These tannins have astringent properties that could help strip oil from pores and possibly improve acne conditions.
Meadowsweet also contains a number of other compounds that could help with a variety of health conditions. Its anti-inflammatory properties means it could help ease the soreness of arthritis, while it can also be calming to the stomach when used as a digestive aid.
Meadowsweet powder isn’t just for boosting health. It’s also been used to dye fabrics with a yellow hue, as well as in the kitchen. Not only can it be made into a pleasant tasting herbal tea but it can also be used in a base for custards, rice puddings, panna cotta and ice creams. The meadowsweet flower pollen has even been used in the past to flavour mead, when infused with fermenting honey.
