Macro Monday ~ Versatile acacia

Acacia was brought to Europe in the 16th century from America, where it spread quite rapidly. It is recognizable by its clustered inflorescences of white to pale yellow color, which smell stunningly of honey. Wood is poorly combustible, and the flowers contain many valuable compounds that have a beneficial effect on our body.

The flowers can be used both fresh and dried. Tea made from dried flowers is good for soothing coughs, but it also has an anti-inflammatory, convulsive effect and acts as a mild laxative. In folk medicine, it is known to trigger sweating and inhibit the formation of stomach acid, which is especially useful in the treatment of gastric and intestinal ulcers.
