The Inula Viscosa is quite a magical plant, which is why we (Lavior) use it in all of our skincare products. The products are suited for just about anybody, particularly diabetics, as they suffer with many skin issues that other people don’t need to worry about. A diabetic will usually suffer from wounds that get infected all too easily, and the aim of using Inula Viscosa in our skincare products is to heal the wounds much faster and prevent infection. But what exactly is the Inula Viscosa?

 

This plant has been highly regarded for thousands of years as one of the most effective medicinal plants in Israel, although it is not commonly heard of anywhere else. Many people outside of Israel have not heard of this plant, and so do not know the magical benefits it can offer for skin health and wound healing. This plant can also be called a False Yellowhead, and it is known to support and protect neighboring plants, as well as help animals to heal faster too. 

 

More About The Inula Viscosa

It is a sturdy perennial shrub that grows in the wild around the Mediterranean. It’s an aromatic plant that has a strong smell of camphor, so you would know that it was there if you stumbled across it. The leaves and stems of the plant have a sticky resin, and the plant will bloom with small yellow flowers, especially during winter. It is one of the few food sources available to honey bees in the winter time, which is another reason it is so highly regarded by locals and nature enthusiasts alike.

 

It is said to have the most potent bio active resin production when in comparison to many other plants. When it is exposed to a lot of sun and not a lot of rain, it will secrete more resin to fend off attacks from insects and fungi bacteria, making it very sticky.

 

Anti-Inflammatory, anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal properties

This plant has been used for thousands of years for wound healing, ulcer treatment, respiratory tract infections, arthritis, and other traditional medicine uses.

 

Wounds

The application of fresh leaves, or a powder made of dry leaves on open or bleeding wounds or burns results in the stoppage of bleeding, and serves as an effective antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent. Treatment using Inula viscosa is preferred by villagers over modern medications, since it promotes faster wound healing.

Dry and rough skin

The powder from the dried Inula viscosa leaf is mixed with oil and applied externally to affected parts of the body.

Arthritis and rheumatism

About 200 grams of Inula viscosa leaves are boiled in
water for 5 minutes; filtered extract is poured into a bath full
of warm water in which the arthritic person immerses
himself for 30 minutes. For rheumatism, a powder made
from Inula viscosa’s dried leaves is mixed with olive oil and
applied on the affected area.

Hemorrhoids

Treatment for hemorrhoids consists of steaming Inula viscosa leaves and sitting over the vapors. A paste is also prepared from ground leaves, mixed with olive oil and applied as a topical ointment.

infections
