- Traditionally used to help support digestive disorders, fever, digestion issues, rashes, toothache and much more.
Carlina Root (carline thistle) is a short-stemmed perennial herb, often called stemless carline thistle, native to the mountains of central and southern Europe. The low-growing plant has spiny, toothed leaves and attractive off-white flowers encompassed by sharp silvery bracts giving it a characteristic thistle-like appearance.
Through its bitter properties, carlina root increases the flow of gastric juices supporting dyspepsia and digestive upsets associated with digestive organ congestion. German authorities recognize that "bitters," including carlina root, help stimulate bile flow and cleanse the liver of fatty deposits.
In Europe, carlina root is rarely used today, except as a component of the gastrointestinal supportive, Swedish Bitters. Carlina root tea is listed in the German Commission E monographs as a diuretic and was used in folk tradition for helping support digestive disorders, inducing sweating and as a gargle for helping support catarrh (mucous) of the upper respiratory tract. Applied topically, the tea was also used to help soothe toothaches. The essential oil has been shown to have disinfectant activity against Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, Salmonella and Shigella.
In folk tradition, the root extracts prepared with wine and water were said to be good for washing out wounds and sores. Studies show that the acetone extracts of carlina root have strong disinfectant activity, but not the aqueous extracts.
