Meadowsweet- Also known as Queen of the Meadow, Meadowwort, and Bridewort, Meadowsweet grows throughout Europe and western Asia, and has become naturalized in North America. Used throughout the ages, the earliest examples of use were found in ancient, Bronze Age burial chambers, where it was used to either flavor or scent mead or as a flower, offered to the dead.
Meadowsweet also has a history within Welsh lore, where it was noted as one of the herbs used to fashion the woman known as “Flowerface.” Throughout medieval times it was also used during festivals and weddings, where it was strewn throughout churches and used to fashion bridal garlands. It was also quite commonly used to strew across floors, and was one of the favored such flowers of Queen Elizabeth.
Herbalists traditionally know Meadowsweet as a remedy for an acidic stomach as well as a treatment for diarrhea. It has also shown itself to be useful in treating aches and pains of the joints and muscles, as well as easing of headaches. This is perhaps due to the fact that it contains one of the chief chemicals that was later used to create Aspirin. This is a 2 oz packet of cut Meadowsweet.
