Natural Remedies using Echinacea Purpurea

Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea pallida var. angustifolia (often referred to as E. angustifolia). A combination of Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea roots works best and I would recommend that you buy it from bona fide herbalists to ensure good quality. Echinacea angustifolia is virtually extinct in the wild through over-harvesting, so be sure to buy only from the cultivated sources – it will be expensive because it is difficult to grow. Echinacea purpurea is, however, easily cultivated in this country and, although less medicinally effective, is a better environmental choice. There is a simple test to assess the quality of echinacea tincture: if you put a drop or two of the neat tincture on your tongue you should feel a strong tingling sensation that is caused by alkylamides, the most relevant active constituents of the plant. If you feel no tingling, you have wasted your money.
