Natural remedy series: Lilac

Lilac🌸 we love it, and it is the season to enjoy its magical perfume.

Did you know its flowers are edible ? 🥀🍽 But one doesn't eat them because they are astringent.

It is the perfume 🌸 in herb teas or the sweetened milk used in custards for example. Also to dress salads and color dishes. 

Massage oil made of lilac flowers has anti-inflammatory characteristics for arthrose and sciatica.

Lilac herb tea has many benefits: soothing, anticoagulant, a bit exhilarating some say, lilac regulates blood pressure but it is mainly for its relaxing properties that is used. Lilac is also a laxative… so use it with moderation.
