Talking Herbs ... Echinacea

Liquidsun proudly manufactures one of the best Echinacea tinctures.  Our Echinacea is organic and single source derived, from the USA.

Today, in talking herbs, we will talk about Echinacea.

Echinacea is a member of the Sunflower family. The generic name Echinacea is rooted in the Greek word ἐχῖνος (echinos), meaning hedgehog, it references the spiky appearance and feel of the flower heads. The flowering structure is a composite inflorescence, with rose-coloured (rarely yellow or white) florets arranged in a prominent, somewhat cone-shaped head – "cone-shaped" because the petals of the outer ray florets tend to point downward (are reflexed) once the flower head opens, thus forming a cone. Plants are generally long lived, with distinctive flowers.

The common name "coneflower" comes from the characteristic centre "cone" at the centre of the flower head.

The European Medicines Agency recognises Echinacea as traditional herbal medicinal product for the relief of symptoms of common cold and for use for the relief of spots and pimples due to mild acne.

Our Echinacea tincture is widely recognised as a fine extract by the herbal practitioner community in the United Kingdom

Besides its use as an ingredient in herbal remedies, Echinacea is used to manufacture various syrups, food supplements and various other products.  We can produce the tinctures in various strengths to suit the end use.
