Horse Chestnut powder 1oz 1618 gold


Native to South Eastern Europe, Horse Chestnut (Aesculus Hippocastanum) is cultivated now within Europe and the US as an ornamental plant. This is largely due to the white flowers that bloom on its branches, followed by the appearance of green-brown fruits. It was first observed as being used by the Turks to treat respiratory problems within their horses, which likely resulted in the modern name. Interestingly, within European folk medicine it was used to ward off and cure arthritis by carrying it on one`s person. Separately, Native Americans began using it similarly, carrying it on their person to ward off rheumatism. In modern herbal practice, Horse Chestnut powder is still used as an anti-inflammatory to treat arthritis and rheumatism. It has also been validated as an expectorant, and is often used to treat respiratory ailments. This is a 1 oz packet of Horse Chestnut powder.
