Fireweed helps soothe inflammation while supporting the body's ability to fight infections. This herb is known for its astringent & anti-inflammatory properties that soothe bladder infections or prostate issues. Traditionally used for ulcers, candida imbalance, & irritable bowl syndrome.
It has also been found helpful by Western herbal clinicians for "stomach flu" and herpes virus infection. It is one of the richest sources of a compound known as oenothein B, which is a demonstrated antiviral, strongly inhibiting herpes simplex 1. (Fuckuchi et al 1989)
Growing in the mountains, in the wild places, fireweed gets its name because it is one of the first plants to grow after a forest fire. Additionally, the leaves turn a ruby red in the fall. The flowers are exceptionally beautiful and bloom from the bottom to the top but not all at once, instead they do a gentle unfolding, tallying the days of summer. When the last flower has bloomed, it signifies that summer has ended and fall is on its way. The bees absolutely love its sweet nectar.
