Meadowsweet (Spiraea ulmaria)
The whole herb possesses a pleasant taste and flavour, the green parts having a similar aromatic character to the flowers, which led to the plant’s use as a strewing herb on floors, to give rooms a pleasant aroma, and also as a flavouring agent in wine, beer, and many vinegars. The flowers can be added to stewed fruit and jams, giving them a subtle almond flavor. Meadowsweet has many medicinal properties. The whole plant is a traditional remedy for an acidic stomach, and the fresh root is often used in negligible quantities in homeopathic preparations. Dried, the flowers are used in potpourri. It is also a frequently used spice in Scandinavian varieties of mead. Chemical constituents include salicylic acid, flavone glycosides, essential oils, and tannins.
