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.
  • Immediately after harvesting, put the celandine to dry in a thin layer, in a shady, well-ventilated, and moisture-free place. Drying in the sun destroys the active principles of the plant.
  • Turn the plants from one side to the other once a day until they are completely dry.
  • You know the celandine is completely dried when it acquires a dark green color; if it has turned black or has discolored, it’s not a good sign.

Half a kilogram of fresh plant makes approximately one hundred grams of dry celandine. To make one kilogram of dried plant, you need around 6-8 kg of fresh celandine plant. 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.

How to Make Celandine Powder

Finely grind the dried celandine using an electric coffee grinder into a fine powder. If you have any larger bits left, sieve them out. Store the fine celandine powder in sealed glass jars, in dark and cold places, for a maximum period of 3 weeks. After three weeks the celandine powder is no longer potent, so it’s best to always make a small batch.

As a general rule, the daily dose for an adult is an eighth of a teaspoon (approximately 0.5 g) 3-4 times a day, on an empty stomach. For children between 6 and 12 years old, the dose is halved, and for children 2-6 years old, it is reduced to a third or even a quarter. Keep the celandine powder under the tongue for 10-15 minutes, then swallow it with a little water.

Keep the powder under your tongue for 10-15 minutes, then swallow with a glass of water in which you have soaked 1-2 teaspoons of flax seeds (Linum catharticum) overnight.

Celandine Side Effects

Overdose (more than four grams of dry plant a day/75-kilogram adult) can cause gastroenteritis, cough, breathing problems, and digestive spasms. In very high doses, it can cause temporary paralysis and cardiac disorders. In rare cases, which relate to individual sensitivity, celandine can also cause liver disorders, going as far as hepatitis.

These problems have also been shown in normal dosing, which is why using celandine internally should start gradually, with small doses, and should be stopped as soon as symptoms such as nausea, loss of appetite, liver increase, red-colored urine, or yellowing of the cornea. 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.
