Possible medicinal uses of Meadowsweet

I found out something rather fascinating about meadowsweet that I didn't know before. Did you know that modern-day aspirin was developed from salicylic acid which is extracted from meadowsweet? Meadowsweet is used now as gentler, milder pain reliever for headaches, low grade fevers, menstrual cramps, and muscle pain.

Meadowsweet is also considered a valuable digestive remedy, especially for heartburn and nausea. You can take it as a tea or as a more concentrated tincture.

Meadowsweet can act as a sedative.
