Purple Coneflower / Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea)

Purple coneflower belongs to a group of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family. This herb is found only in eastern and central North America, where they are found growing in moist to dry prairies and open wooded areas. The generic name is derived from the Greek word ἐχῖνος (ekhinos), meaning “hedgehog,” due to the spiny central disk. The last years, this herb has been under scientific analysis, due to its many beneficial properties.

Echinacea is primarily used to alleviate symptoms associated with the common cold, such as nasal congestion and sore throat. Also, topical treatments containing echinacea may also aid in wound-healing. Moreover, additional health benefits associated with echinacea use, include diminished pain, reduced inflammation and enhanced immune function. Echinacea may also impart antiviral or antioxidant effects on the body.

Purple coneflower is not used in cooking. It is consumed as a beverage for its numerous health benefits.
