Chickweed Stellaria media
Chickweed's botanical name Stellaria comes from the word 'stellar' meaning star, in reference to the shape of its flowers. Chickweed has a long history of traditional use as a cooling anti-pruritic to soothe hot itchy skin. One of the best remedies available in the treatment of symptoms associated with eczema and dermatitis such as inflammation and itching. The cooling affect of this herb is also helpful in soothing minor burns and insect bites.
Poroporo Solanum laciniatum
A NZ native herb, traditionally used as a healing, anti-inflammatory remedy for skin conditions such as eczema. The constituent believed to be responsible for the healing activity of this plant is the steroidal saponin solasonine. Steroidal saponins have a close structural relationship to steroid hormones produced by the body (eg. the anti-inflammatory steroid cortisol). Solasonine, is used commercially as a precursor for the production of complex steroidal compounds in Europe, and is believed to either interact directly with steroid receptors on the outside of cells, or act as a precursor for the body’s own production of anti-inflammatory steroid hormones within the body (ie. the body manufactures its steroid hormones from these substances). - Kiwiherb, Phytomed
