Lot of people, I know are sick right now, because it’s cold and it’s winter in the northern hemisphere, and a lot of people have been all together for the holidays here, and there’s been a nasty chest cold going around, especially in the United States. Did you know that Echinacea has been used for centuries for both treating colds, flu viruses, skin eruptions, infections and also was used for centuries to rebuke the devil and demons and to cleanse a home or body of anything evil. People used to believe that when they were sick it wasn’t necessarily something they caught from someone else, but actually some evil force which inhabited their body, and they knew that if they took echinacea root, from the purple cone flower that grew above it, they would feel better and get the devil out of their chest,! So if you’re not feeling really good right now, it might be a good time to explore this wonderful herb and find out what other people have known for quite a long time.
