Plants and herbs

The importance and importance of plants in nature cannot be overemphasized –
without them, the planet would simply be unfit for life. However, in this
they are not considered to be participants in the natural
circulation of substances in nature, but in a more utilitarian

It’s no secret that herbs and plants can help
care, treatment and nutrition of hair. But before you study the useful
recipes and try to prepare useful masks and infusions should
get an idea of ​​the structure of herbs as such. In botany
5 main parts of the plant are distinguished:

  • Roots – the underground part, which performs 2
    important functions: securing the plant in the ground and delivery
    nutrients and water to its remaining parts. To the roots also
    Often include the rhizome – a modified underground shoot,
    which serves for the supply of nutrients and vegetative
  • Stem – ground part of grassy
    perennials. Stems grow from growths on the rhizome, referred to as
    corms. The main task of the stem is to keep the leaves and
    provide for the delivery to them of the soil of all that is necessary for
    photosynthesis – in particular, water.
  • Leaves – the most important part of the plant.
    They contain a green pigment called chlorophyll,
    capturing sunlight and carbon dioxide, converts nutrient
    substances and water extracted by roots from the soil into complex organic
    connections required for power. Prominent during these
    oxygen processes is a necessary component for
    the existence of all life on earth.
  • Flowers – a necessary part for reproduction.
    The flower is a complex system consisting of
    sepals and stamen protecting petals – they contain pollen
    – and the pistil from which the ovary is formed after pollination, a,
    subsequently, the fruit.
  • The fruits are essentially storage. Securely hidden
    in their pulp or box the seeds can later give life
    another plant. Nature has provided several ways
    seed propagation – from falling and germination after aging
    fetus before being carried by birds or winds.

All this information may seem superfluous at first glance, but
in fact, it is important enough – and first of all in order
to understand the benefits these amazing creations can do
nature itself.

People have long believed that everything around them has everything necessary for
treating any disease – just go to the meadow or to
forest. Today, the healing properties of herbs are spoken more and more often – and this
unsurprisingly, with amazing efficiency they are enough
safe and much more pleasant to use than the most
modern medicine.

In addition, many are also attracted by their availability: they can be

or buy in a pharmacy or supermarket a healthy diet – in any
In this case it will be much cheaper than pills, ointments and mixtures.

Different plants can be used in different ways: for some
species in the case are all parts – from the roots to the inflorescences, and in some
take only the fruits and leaves. Meet on sale fresh
Even today, herbs are quite difficult – most often for customers.
offer them in the form of tinctures, essences, extracts.

However, if there is a desire to prepare a healing tool
yourself, the best option would be just collected or
dried herbs. There are several options for their preparation – and
Each of them will be useful in its own way in one or another situation.


Infusion Get a useful infusion of herbs simple enough –
As a rule, this means is obtained after pouring the vegetable
raw boiling water and keeping in a closed container short
time. Whether to pour dried leaves and inflorescences into boiling water or
pour the prepared mixture to them – there is no one about it
Opinions, usually it all depends on the recipe.

Infusion time also depends on what kind of raw material and for what
getting ready. However, there are rules to follow.
unconditionally: first, the tool needs to be prepared only in
ceramic or glassware (metal can strongly
reduce the benefit of plants by reacting with some
substances contained in them), and secondly, to insist on it
too long is undesirable – as a rule, 15-20 minutes is enough.


Broth Broth – the best way to extract vitamins, minerals
salts and other beneficial substances from wood bark, dried fruit and
seeds, however, in the case of flowers, leaves and herbs, this method
cooking is no less effective. When using dry
vegetable raw boiling time is approximately 10-15
minutes, it will take a little less for fresh – about 5 minutes.

In both cases, the decoction is prepared under the lid, then carefully
filtered and stored in opaque closed containers.

Cold extract

Cold extract This method of cooking healing
means not too common however it is considered one of
best – using cold extraction can be extracted from the plant
maximum of nutrients without fear of their destruction. In this case
herbs are filled with cold water, it should be noted that for
processing will require twice as much raw material as for decoction or
infusion, and cooking time is at least 12 hours. After
All this is necessary to filter and store the extract in a dense
closed glass container.


Herbs Powder Dried herbs are often used in
powdered state – for this it is enough to crush them
using a pestle. The resulting composition can be used with different
with liquids, and with the ability even to fill gelatin capsules.
The dosage and scheme of use of herbs in this form should be discussed with
competent specialist.


Tincture The combination of herbs with alcohol is a great way for a long time.
preserve their useful properties. To prepare the tincture
shredded vegetable raw material is poured diluted to
50-degree strength with ethyl alcohol – for 1-4 parts of herbs
will need 12 parts of alcohol. The mixture is infused under the lid in
for 7-14 days, then filtered and stored in an opaque
glass container. In the period of insisting composition is necessary
shake regularly.


Essence is a great way to preserve miraculous properties.
essential oil. To do this, dilute it in alcohol (one and a half
tablespoons 0.5 liters of alcohol).


At first glance it may seem that it is quite complicated.
dosage form, however, to prepare the ointment at all
easy – you need to mix dried herbs and warmed
petrolatum in a ratio of 1: 4. There is another way in which herbal
the decoction is mixed with olive oil and boiled until the water evaporates.
It is desirable to add a little beeswax – for density
(the mixture must be stirred until the wax melts) or
benzoin resin – for better storage.


Used for immediate use – heat and moisture in
combined with beneficial substances give an excellent effect. For this
the raw materials, crushed into gruel, are diluted with hot water or flour
mash, the resulting tool is applied to a clean soft cloth
(preferably flannel) and applied to the problem area. Until
poultice is done, the fabric is required to constantly moisten hot
water, at the end of the procedure, it is desirable to wipe the skin clean
wet swab.


A great solution when you need to quickly ease the pain,
eliminate itching or relieve inflammation. For this piece of clean cloth

itching, however with inflammations are not recommended. Pursuing
preparation of various dosage forms of herbs should
remember that light and oxygen are extremely undesirable for any of them.
Compositions should be stored in ceramic containers or vessels.

dried plant materials should be remembered that after a year it
loses useful properties, so after this period
unused herbs should be disposed of, replacing them with new ones.
