5 Lesser-Known Healing Properties of Chrysanthemum Flowers

The “Queen of Autumn” or the “elixir of the eternal life”. Call it whatever you may, but the truth is that this flower is a gift that nature has so kindly offered it to us.

In Japan, for instance, this plant was considered to be so sacred that it was only deemed worthy of emperors alone. That’s why it could only be represented on the clothing of the imperial family. The average Joe was forbidden such a privilege, and those who dared to adorn it and embellish their clothes with it received the capital punishment.

Today, this flower appears on Japanese stamps and coins, and the Supreme Order of this flower is the name given to the highest distinction in the state.

Can you guess the plant in question?

It’s the truly spectacular chrysanthemum, considered since ancient times to be a symbol of longevity and health.

In fact, chrysanthemum holds some pretty exceptional healing effects.

Its multicolored petals are rich in minerals, like potassium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and calcium, which are necessary for the normal functioning of the body, especially the central nervous system.

But the petals of the flower also contain essential oils that strengthen the immune system and inhibit Parkinson’s disease.

In traditional Chinese medicine, its leaves are used to combat migraines, and dried flowers are used to increase appetite.

Chrysanthemum is truly a remarkable force of nature. So let’s see how you can put it to great use.
