The Healing Properties of Echinacea

The Healing Properties of Echinacea

Native to the United States as well as Canada and Europe, Echinacea is a popular herb used to fight off infections like the common cold and the flu. Rich in active substances like polysaccharides, glycoproteins, alkamides, and flavonoids, Echinacea is also widely used in beauty care products.

Echinacea has the ability to lock in hydration in both your skin and hair. It is loaded with healthy proteins and oils that deeply hydrate and nourish skin while also ensuring that the hydration stays locked in to give you long lasting softness and moisturized skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help it fight off acne and breakouts while soothing redness and inflammation. 

What are the benefits of Echinacea?

Its anti-microbial properties also help unclog pores and clear skin of bacteria that can cause breakouts and blackheads. It is also rich in tannins which give it astringent properties. This helps shrink pores and leads to firmer skin. It has also been shown to reduce symptoms of eczema and repair the skin’s thin, protective outer layer. It has powerful antibacterial properties which can prevent skin infections from forming and spreading. 

Echinacea can also powerfully improve the health of your scalp and hair. It is an effective remedy for dandruff and other scalp inflammations. Its antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties can help calm an irritated scalp. It also deeply hydrates the scalp keeping itchiness and flakiness associated with a dry scalp at bay. 

The vitamins and minerals in Echinacea also work to wonderfully nourish your locks from the follicles. It locks moisture into your tresses making them more manageable, lustrous, and less prone to breakage due to dryness. It also stimulates hair growth, sometimes even being used to manage the symptoms of alopecia which can cause patchy hair loss on the head and body. It enhances blood circulation and strengthens hair from their roots.
