Description

Chickweed (Stellaria media) may be helpful with Topically dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, insect bites. The benefits of chickweed may in part be due to its high nutritional value.

Chickweed is best known for its soothing and healing quality. The high saponin content of this herb is thought to be the reason for its effectiveness in relieving skin problems such as erysipelatous and other forms of ulceration, as well as many forms of cutaneous diseases. Chickweed has been used traditionally as an external remedy for cuts, wounds, minor burns, abscesses and skin irritations, especially such as itching, dryness and irritation due to dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis. Chickweed is usually considered a safe herb but it should not be used by pregnant or nursing women.
