We use the healing properties of ivy budra for the benefit of our body
Constant inflammatory processes in the lungs and bronchi lead to the development of chronic diseases, including asthma. The medicinal properties of ivy budra are widely used in folk medicine for the treatment of the respiratory tract. Moreover, healing potions from this poisonous plant have a positive effect on the functioning of the mucous membrane, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys and bladder. Recent studies have shown that homeopathy is effective in treating leukemia as well as liver cancer.
Amazing budra with a hint of poison
A perennial herb belongs to the Yasnotkov family. It is also popularly called dog mint because it resembles this culture in many ways. In height budr reaches 20-60 cm. On the ascending creeping stem (with or without hairs), relief leaves on long roots are oppositely located. The plates are heart-shaped with a carved edge. Grass flowers deserve special attention, because the healing properties of ivy budra depend on the aboveground mass.
In turn, they are particularly decorative:
- light purple or blue tint;
- corolla two-lipped: lower petals are longer than upper ones;
- the flower is covered with villi;
- burgundy sepals are presented in the form of a bell.
Dog mint is quite poisonous. Most often, poisoning is observed with overdose. Symptoms are similar to common poisoning: nausea, vomiting, headache, profuse sweating, and dizziness.
The bloom period lasts from May to August, accompanied by a heady scent that not everyone likes. Then ovoid fruits of a brown hue are formed. Healing perennials are harvested only during the budding period, when the highest activity of useful components is achieved. In this case, the tops of the stems are cut off at a height of 10 cm from the ground. The greens are then left in the sun. When the grass has dried up a little, it is transferred under a canopy. The place is chosen with good ventilation. Turn the raw material periodically for good drying. The finished product is packed in glass containers and stored for 12 months.
Often, the plant is collected in bunches and hung on a rope. You can use dryers, setting the optimum temperature – 40˚С.
