How to Harvest Celandine
Greater celandine (Chelidonium majus) can be harvested from the beginning of May, or the end of April, when it starts to bloom, until the end of November. Only harvest it when it has buds or flowers, and not when it already has seed pods. Harvesting is done in sunny weather, as harvesting on rainy days or after rain turns the plant brown, which lessens its active principles. To avoid staining your hands, wear a pair of gloves when cutting the aerial parts (leaves, stems, and flowers) of the celandine. Do not touch your eyes, mouth, or other sensitive areas, with your hands, as celandine may be very irritating.
Fresh celandine leaves an orange sap (latex), which has very important medicinal properties, especially for skin problems such as warts. You can learn how to use fresh celandine for warts here. Now that you know when and how to harvest fresh celandine, let’s see how to make celandine syrup, a delicious and healing recipe.
How to Make Celandine Honey at Home
For this very old celandine honey recipe for many health problems, you need only the following ingredients:
2 cups of fresh celandine plant (with flowers)
1 kg of honey
3 whole lemons
Wash the freshly picked celandine plants with flowers in cold running water for 30 minutes. Then cut it and boil in a liter (4 cups) of water, over low heat, for 10 minutes. Strain the decoction twice, add the whole chopped lemons (with peels), and boil for 5 another minutes. Remove from the heat, leave for 20 minutes to sit, then add the honey, and mix it in. If the honey is too thick, add some water so your celandine honey really has a honey-like consistency.
How to Use Celandine Honey for Health
Have a teaspoon of celandine honey with your herbal tea, twice a day, for two months, while having a moment of gratitude. You can use the entire batch only once every year, as fresh celandine is very potent and in large quantities can become toxic. Celandine honey is a wonderful remedy for many health problems, namely thrombophlebitis, varicose veins, various tumors, and liver and kidney sand. Topically you can use in the form of compresses, to treat skin dermatoses.
Celandine Side Effects
Since ancient times, healers have known that celandine can be a toxic plant when used incorrectly. Thus, it is used only in small quantities, for a short period of time, and best combined with other herbs. Celandine overdose can cause vomiting, nausea, muscle cramps, sudden drop in blood pressure with bradycardia (rare pulse), and central nervous system problems. First aid consists of stomach washing and drinking lots of water. We recommend that you only use celandine preparations under the supervision of an experienced herbal doctor.
