Easter (Veronica) is a plant genus that belongs to the Plantain family. About 300 of them are known, but in Bulgaria we find only 40-50 of them. Growing in our country is to annual, biennial or perennial herbaceous plants. It can be found both at sea level and in forests or high mountain peaks. As its name suggests, it blooms in April or May.
The most famous is the healing Easter (Veronica officinalis). It is a perennial herbaceous plant, growing in both deciduous and coniferous forests.
Easter extract lowers blood pressure, serves as an expectorant and as such helps with chronic bronchitis and bronchial asthma.
It can be taken internally in the form of tea, which is prepared as follows, pour 250 mg of water 1 tablespoon of herb. Then it is brewed for more than 20 minutes, so you get the dose in one day. It can be taken as a remedy for atherosclerosis, because it not only cures it, but also protects against the developing of such conditions.
Easter (Veronica) can also be found as a tincture, which we can easily prepare at home by filling a one-liter bottle to the point of narrowing the throat with a flowering herb, which we have previously cut and then add 40-degree brandy. (Same tincture we can make with the first snowdrops, nettles, plantain leaf too) Keep it in the sun for 14 days and then strain it. Then store it in the refrigerator. The tincture helps with gout and rheumatism, the tincture can be rubbed into the skin too (good for massages).
You can also take it as a juice, as the fresh inflorescences are squeezed still wet in the juicer. You can pour the juice into small bottles and store in the refrigerator, but do not drink more than 2-3 times a day. We can combine it with other herbs for better effectiveness. If we get nettle tips and make tea, we can cure eczema and it is a great blood purifier. Equal amounts of Easter with celery tuber tea is incredibly helpful for restoring fresh memory and against hypochondria.
If we combine Easter tea and horsetail in our tea, we can use it against sudden gaps in the memory.
Two cups a day of Easter tea clears blood cholesterol levels.
