Houseleek known as

.
I had an inflammation of the middle ear last week and suffered a terrible pain. I rarely visit a doctor, so I tried to provide first aid to myself. I dripped a few drops of juice from houseleek leaf into the ear and the pain disappeared after 10 minutes. Just amazing. I have never used it before for anything, but it definitely works. I hope I'll motivate some of you to research more about this fantastic plant.

Houseleek in Latin is Sempervivum (genus of about 40 species of flowering plants) and means "live eternally" (semper = always + vivum = life).
It's interesting because of its name, looks and healing properties. It was named because of the popular belief that it kept and protected the house and family from fires, illnesses, strikes, vampires, witches and other unwanted phenomena.
Houseleek is fleshy, juicy plant with thick, oval leaves arranged in a rosette form. In the middle of the plant developing flower stalks with a set of flowers, mostly pink flowers.

People have always known the healing properties of the juice that leaks from the cut leaf of houseleek. Its juice keeps a real treasury of active medicinal ingredients. These are tannin, apple and formic acid, polysaccharides, wax, mineral salts, calcium malate and fatty oils.

Some benefits of this magical flower:

1. Anti-Inflammatory
-It can be for external use, or it can be taken orally. Several drops of juice can be
added into a beverage that can help with various internal inflammation and pain.

2. Headaches and insomnia
-A headache- apply the inner side of the leaf to the forehead, relax and wait to start
working.
-Insomnia- Several drops of its juice in the soothing herbal tea will help with sleep
issues and nightmares.

3. Oral cavity health
-Gargling mixture of its juice mixed with honey will alleviate any kind of inflammation
of the oral cavity.

4. Heals the skin
-Crushed leaves of the fresh plant or its juice can be used as a balm for burns, cuts,
bruises, ulcers and inflammatory skin diseases in general.

HazySue Wow that plant is amazing. It reminds me of a plant we have here called hens n' chicks. I wonder if they are related in the plant world.
