Additional Information

Sundews (Drosera) were used as medicinal herbs as early as the 12th century, when an Italian doctor from the School of Salerno, Matthaeus Platearius, described the plant as an herbal remedy for coughs under the name herba sole. Sundew tea was especially recommended by herbalists in Germany and in Europe for dry coughs, bronchitis, whooping cough, asthma and “bronchial cramps”.[1] A modern study has shown that Drosera exhibits antitussive properties.[2]

Today, Drosera is usually used to treat ailments such as asthma, coughs, lung infections, and stomach ulcers.
