    SANDY EVERLASTING Overview Information

    Sandy everlasting is a fragrant-smelling shrub commonly found in Europe. There are over 300 related species. The parts of the plant that grow above the ground, especially the dried flowers, are used to make medicine.

    Sandy everlasting is used for upset stomach (dyspepsia), liver disorders, and gallbladder disease. It is also used for chronic bronchitis, asthma, whooping cough, burns, joint pain (rheumatism), headache, migraine, fluid retention, allergies, and a skin condition called psoriasis.

    In foods, beverages, and tobacco, the sandy everlasting extract is used as a flavoring.

    In manufacturing, it is used in perfumes, and before- and after-sun products.

    How does it work?

    Sandy everlasting contains chemicals that might help fight bacteria, reduce swelling (inflammation), and increase the production of digestive juices. It might also boost the liver’s ability to process harmful toxins. Of the over 300 species of sandy everlasting, many have similar active ingredients, but in different amounts.
