Also known as the purple coneflower, this perennial herb is renowned for its ability to stimulate the immune system. This herb is native to the American Great Plain, found in Central and North America. The parts of the plant that are used are the roots, leaves and stems. This plant prefers moist, rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Once the plant is 2-4 years old roots are best harvested in the autumn. This herb is great for treating insect bites/stings, and halting infections. Echinacea is considered a natural antibiotic, and is also effective as an anti-mircobial agent, anti-inflammatory, and wound healer. Taking echinacea regularly will help with overall health but is advised that a break of a week should be taken after every 3 weeks of prolonged use. Peppermint and Echinacea tea daily is a great way to enhance your immune system and prevent getting sick.
