Exhilerating Echinacia

I did not know that Echinacia is a flower in the Daisy family. It’s indeed a beautiful flower and very abundant, just about everywhere right now. It’s said that Echinacia helps support the immune system when taken in tincture form, but now I’m seeing evidence that it’s not the case. If you are someone who knows more about studies out there that support the flower’s benefits to the body, please post a link the comments section. Would love to hear more about that.

This flower is native to Central North America, and the name of the flower comes from a Greek root word, Echino, meaning sea urchin. because of the flower’s spikiness characteristics. Bees love this flower probably because it’s easy to crawl around on? They are tolerant of draught’s which is why it’s largely found on dry prairies in the middle of the country?

Hope you like this post this week, be sure to visit again next week and why not share this post with your friends and connections.
