KLOSTERFRAU Spirit of Melissa

13 medicinal herbs for the medicine cabinet

The healing power of melissa, or lemon balm, has been known since ancient times. The Arabs later cultivated the herb in Spain, and from there it spread to central Europe. Because of its healing properties and popularity with bees, lemon balm has been grown since medieval times, and no monastery or convent would be without it in their herb garden.

To this day, lemon balm is used primarily for its positive effects on our nervous system. Because the autonomic nervous system houses the control centre for bodily functions such as respiration, cardiac function, digestion and sleep. Lemon balm can be used both for its stimulating and soothing effects. It can relieve cramps and alleviate pain.

Klosterfrau Spirit of Melissa has been produced by Klosterfrau for many generations, following a trusted recipe. Besides lemon balm, Spirit of Melissa also includes 12 other established medicinal herbs. This makes up the unique composition of Klosterfrau Spirit of Melissa. The herbs it contains come from cultured plant crops. Digestive problems, sleep disorders, anxiety and tension in the autonomic nervous system can cause us to feel unwell. The medicinal herbs in Klosterfrau Spirit of Melissa possess soothing properties which relieve non-specific digestive problems such as bloating and indigestion. Klosterfrau Spirit of Melissa can also help provide relief from sleep disorders and help provide a good night’s sleep. The herbs can also ease nervousness and tension. Applied externally, Klosterfrau Spirit of Melissa can be used for aching muscles and headaches.

KLOSTERFRAU – GAINING SUCCESS WITH TRADITION

Herbal medicines for health and well-being

Klosterfrau Spirit of Melissa, the most well-known product from Klosterfrau, was introduced in Switzerland in 1953. Steeped in tradition, the Spirit of Melissa is based on the original recipe of 1826 by the nun Maria Clementine Martin, which she constantly refined each time she made it. Today, Klosterfrau Spirit of Melissa still enjoys a high degree of popularity and is found in many home medicine cabinets. In the same year, Maria Clementine Martin founded her company near Cologne Cathedral, laying the foundations for a global pharmaceutical company with her successful herbal remedies.

Iceland moss

The folk medicine with a long tradition

There is a long history of using Iceland moss. For centuries, the lichen has been used in folk medicine to treat irritation of the mucous membranes in the upper respiratory tract because of its mucilage. Taken in the form of a cough syrup or throat lozenge, Iceland moss forms a layer on the mucous membranes in the mouth and throat, like a balm.

Because of its soothing effect on irritated mucous membranes, Iceland moss is used as a cough remedy for dry, tickly coughs. Iceland moss has a purely physical effect. It forms a protective film on the mucous membrane, keeping irritants away.

The soothing active substances in Iceland moss protect the mucous membranes from pathogens. Healthy mucous membranes can easily fend off malicious intruders. If the mucous membranes are weakened, however, pathogens have an easy time.

 
Iceland moss has been used in the treatment of respiratory diseases for 400 years.
