Long before the coming of the European settlers, the native Americans used Echinacea (also called Purple Cone Flower) to treat a variety of problems, from infections to snake bites.
In the United States, Echinacea was popularized by the eclectic physicians` movement in the 19th Century. After that, its use was almost forgotten until the 1980`s. In Europe, however, Echinacea was popular with the medical world from the beginning of the Century and has been the subject of numerous clinical studies. Today, Echinacea is the most widely sold medicinal herb in the world.
Sage (Salvia officinalis) is a shrub native of the Mediterranean basin. In ancient times, sage was traditionally considered a panacea (cure-all). As time went by some indications became more popular. In topical applications, sage is useful for inflammation of mucous membranes and tonsils. Orally, it helps to reduce excessive perspiration like that caused by severe malady (tuberculosis), it aids digestion and improves wound healing. For a long time, sages reputation as brain tonic was laughed at but, recently, its beneficial effect in Alzheimers disease was shown.
