Chickweed General Information
Chickweed is an herb, but often it is thought of as a weed. This herb has a long growing season and its pollen is a common cause of springtime allergies. Chickweed is one of few sources of fresh seed for birds in the winter. Chickweed is a European native that has naturalized throughout the world in fertile, mineral rich soil. The herb is often found growing under Oak trees. The name Stellaria refers to Chickweed’s tiny, white, star shaped flowers. 17th Century English physician Nicholas Culpeper described chickweed as “a fine soft pleasing herb under the dominion of the moon.”

Chickweed Uses & Scientific Evidence For
As a traditional folk remedy, Chickweed was used to treat asthma, indigestion, eczema and psoriasis. Herbalists use it primarily to support the urinary system, while others use it for the nutrients it supplies that help the body’s metabolism-balancing functions. This herb contains vitamins A and C, and some B vitamins, plus calcium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Today Chickweed is still used to regulate the metabolism and aids in digestion, but it also helps relieve the symptoms of nasal congestion, bronchitis, colds, and coughs. Chickweed is also used to aid in circulation. As a poultice, this herb works well on skin diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, warts, rashes, itches, scabs, redness in the eyes (including conjunctivitis), and ears. An infusion or tincture works well on boils, carbuncles, abscesses, skin eruptions, infections, diseases, sores, and swellings.

Chickweed Dosage Information
By reading the label instructions and following the directions you will achieve the best results.

Making a tea of Chickweed can be done this way; place 2 oz of fresh Chickweed leaves and stems in a warmed glass container. Bring 2.5 cups of fresh, non-chlorinated water to the boiling point and then add it to the herbs. Cover and infuse the tea for about 10 minutes. Stain and drink warm. The prepared tea will store for about two days in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Chickweed tea may be enjoyed by the cupful up to three times a day.

A strong infusion may be used as a skin wash or bath additive to soothe itching and inflamed skin.
