A member of the evening-primrose family (Onagraceae), epilobium can be found growing worldwide. Its common name willowherb comes from its willow shaped leaves and in some areas it is known as fireweed for its ability to reclaim ground that has been disturbed by forest fires.

Epilobium has a long history of use in medicine. Today, you will also find a number of cosmetic products contain Epilobium for its medicinal benefits.

The three main health benefits of Epilobium are:

Anti-inflammatory – Epilobium is traditionally used to treat an enlarged prostate due to its anti-inflammatory properties. This quality has also proven it to be a beneficial remedy against: gastrointestinal disorders, kidney and bladder disorders, rectal bleeding, menstrual disorders, cystitis, urinary infections, diarrhea, mouth lesions and irritable bowel syndrome. Some users have also found the plant to help combat against urinary incontinence.

Astringent – As a topical application, epilobium can help soothe skin disorders, including: minor burns, skin rashes, ulcers and skin irritations.

Antioxidant – The high levels of antioxidants found in epilobium also contribute to fighting bacteria commonly caused from skin conditions and internal disorders.

Other uses

Epilobium extract is commonly used in a wide selection of cosmeceuticals, ranging from creams, shampoos and baby wipes. This is primarily due to its astringent quality.

Uses and preparations

Infusion: Epilobium has been used as an infusion in tea throughout history, primarily for its use to combat prostate problems but has also been known to improve digestion and promote relaxation. Add 1-2 teaspoons of dried epilobium to a teapot and cover with boiling water. Leave to brew for up to five minutes and strain before serving.

Tincture:Use epilobium for conditions such as UTIs in the form of a concentrated tincture, which can be applied directly under the tongue or mixed with water.

Infused oil:An epilobium infused oil can be beneficial for those using this plant for its astringent qualities, specifically if applying to the scalp.

Poultice:Applied to the skin, an epilobium poultice can help to relieve against skin irritations.


If taken in too higher quantity, epilobium may cause nausea or indigestion.

Always consult your doctor before taking epilobium if you are taking any prescription medicines.

    Firstly, let me commend you on your prompt dispatch of my order. A three day turnaround is fantastic. My husband has been using Epilobium, purchased from you, for about a year now and it is certainly doing the job. From getting up 3-4 times a night to not getting up at all is great. We have even put a friend on to it so we’ll see how he goes.

    Hi, I've been using it since I received it 3 weeks ago. I went for a blood test yesterday so on Friday I will know if there is any change in my PSA numbers. John

    Family business, familiar customers

    I have recently purchase the Epilobium tea leafs from you, after long time missing it from my cupboard, as was run out from my supplier. I was so pleased to find this family business. I don't know you personally, but I already feel I am treated like a member of your family and definitely I am going to order some other things on offer. (by the way, do you have Green Tea leafs?)

    Aww thanks for your order and kind review! Welcome to the family. We don't sell green tea leaf at the moment, sorry.
