Echinacea boosts the immune system, increasing the body’s chances of fighting off diseases. It can be used as a preventative at the onset of colds and flu, or to reduce the symptoms and duration of a cold or flu, tonsillitis, bronchitis, hay fever, sinusitis and whooping cough. 


Echinacea leaves were used in traditional Native American medicine and were mashed up and prepared as a poultice to treat and relieve insect bites and stings as well minor burns and skin wounds.   Echinacea roots were also chewed to help relieve sore throats, colds, flu and toothache.  Extracts obtained from this species of Echinacea are commonly used in modern commercial cold and flu relief tablets in combination with other ingredients.  Echinacea used medicinally may cause gastrointestinal upset and can cause severe reactions including anaphylaxis, asthma attacks or skin rashes in people who are allergic to it, so care should be taken if using it.
