Nasturtiums

Nasturtiums are an edible and medicinal flower and herb that are high in vitamin C and have potent anti-viral and antibiotic properties. They have the ability to help build strong blood by promoting the formation of blood cells. Nasturtium leaves are known to be an effective remedy for bladder, kidney, and urinary tract infections. They also are highly beneficial for nervous depression, constipation, indigestion, sore throats, sinus infections, and eye and skin health. 

Nasturtium also works as an expectorant and can help break up congestion in the respiratory passages during colds, flu, and bronchial infections. Nasturtium is high in sulfur and is especially good at helping to increase energy and prevent brain fog. The flowers and leaves are also known to stimulate the tiny capillaries of the scalp making it a great hair-growth supplement. 

Nasturtium leaves have a peppery taste similar to that of arugula. They can be juiced, chopped and added to salads, or steamed like spinach. The brilliant flowers make a beautiful addition to salads, wraps, smoothies, and soups. Nasturtium leaves and flowers also make a delicious medicinal tea. Fresh or dried leaves can be added to hot water and allowed to steep for at least 20 minutes, sweeten with raw honey if desired. 

Crushed leaves and flowers can also work as a natural topical antibiotic for cuts, scrapes, blisters, or wounds. Simply crush the flowers and leaves in a little bit of coconut or olive oil and place on skin. Wrap lightly with gauze to secure and change twice a day for best results. Nasturtiums are easy to grow straight from seed indoors or out and are a simple, but effective way to include this healing flower and herb into your diet.
