Collection: Chickweed

Stellaria media 

Chickweed is widely distributed and has been used for nutrition and medicine by inhabitants of every continent. Its naturally high levels of vitamin C and related bioflavonoids such as rutin make it a delightfully sour addition to salads, which Kuumba always enjoys after harvesting chickweed. 

It has cooling and drying actions on abrasions, minor burns, acne, and psoriasis. With emollient properties that soothe the skin, and mild astringent properties that draw out toxins, there are few skin conditions that it can’t help!
