Meadowsweet has a slightly bitter, characteristic, herbaceous flavour. Meadowsweet plays an important role in the elimination of water in tissues (and also in their tightening), has a granted ability to absorb toxins (causes of cellulite and rheumatism) and to calm neuralgia and migraines thanks, among others, to its salicylic compounds. These compounds have an as well soft as progressive and well tolerated anti-inflammatory and analgesic action which make that meadowsweet, like willow, are considered as "vegetable aspirin" but with the benefits of aspirin without its drawbacks.
Meadowsweet has also been referred to as Queen of the Meadow, Pride of the Meadow, Meadow-Wort, Meadow Queen, Lady of the Meadow, Dollof, Meadsweet, Mead Wort and Bridewort.
