    So, using as decoctions decoctions and infusions of various medicinal herbs, we achieve a quick healing effect. It is known that the most rapid drugs act on the body, when they are administered in the form of aerosols. The medicine is sprayed in the air, when inhaled immediately gets into the lungs and then into the blood.

    In folk medicine, this method( inhalation) has been known since time immemorial. Breathe air, steam, saturated volatile substances of plants, means to ensure the rapid entry into the body of medicinal principles. In Russia this method of treatment has been and is being used now very widely. Here and there, small wooden rooms( chipchuns) were built for this purpose, which were used to inhale the ice aromas from steamed grasses, leaves of bushes and trees, and plant roots. Thus, many diseases, especially skin diseases, respiratory organs, musculoskeletal system were treated.

    Our ancestors have long discovered the beneficial effects of plant fragrances on humans. Some of the

    of these flavors have medicinal qualities, while others, on the contrary, cause nausea and dizziness, headache and even fainting. Even the ancients knew that, for example, the smell of roses heals from pain arising from fatigue and nervous tension. It acts on nerves, as a soothing medicine. And the stronger the smell coming from roses, the more beneficial it is.

    Some ancient doctors believed that the smell of some plants, especially flowers, often acts more efficiently than even the essence obtained from them.

    The mechanism of treatment with the smells, fragrances of plants became clear after the discovery by the Russian scientist B. Tokin of the bactericidal abilities of many plants emitting phytoncides, substances that kill pathogenic microorganisms. In addition, plants contain essential oils, tannins, organic acids, etc., which also have a beneficial effect on the body, getting into it with steam, air.

    Observation of people who are constantly in the bosom of nature breathing aromas of plants, show that they are less likely to get sick, live longer, are good-natured, responsive. Many believe that some flavors enhance mental activity, among some fragrances it is well thought. A historical fact is known: the famous Greek philosopher Plato conducted classes with his pupils in thickets of mint. Excellent mountaineers are distinguished, who breathe clean mountain air filled with the aroma of alpine grasses. This fragrance acts not only through the respiratory system, but penetrates the human body through the skin( skin

    breathes).At the same time, the aromas of plants not only saturate the air with oxygen, but promote the introduction of this oxygen through the skin into the body.

    It is clear from the above recipes of bath cocktails that some of them have an effect on many organs and systems of the human body: on the skin, respiratory organs, musculoskeletal system, on the activity of the liver and kidneys, and the organs of the digestive tract.it is impossible not to name such people as mint, sage, mother-and-stepmother, chamomile, St. John's wort, nettle, oregano, ayr, aloe, marshmallow, anise, rosemary, birch, poplar black, alder, yarrow, immortelle, hawthorn, cranberry, watchthree-leaved, valerian, elecampane, angelica, donnioak, viburnum, calendula, cranberry, linden, burdock, raspberry, lemon balm, juniper, sea buckthorn, dandelion, plantain, wormwood, mountain ash, currant, thyme, fennel, horsetail, celandine, dogrose, eucalyptus, some others.medicinal plants for cocktails

    Peppermint is one of the most respected plants in Russia, it was eaten by it, Kvass with mint is the best drink in the bath, and a cocktail of plants with mint is one of the most used inbath.

    Very much like the Russian people oregano, in the grass which found essential oils and aromatic compounds such as phenols, thymol, geranilacetate, carvacrol and others. In addition, the grass contains fatty oils and tannins. Galenic preparations of oregano( infusions, decoctions, cocktails) have

    anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and analgesic properties. Infusion of oregano has a choleretic, diuretic and pronounced sedative effect;the infusion also has anti-seizure action.

    It is easy to imagine what a beneficial effect on the body will have the air of a steam room saturated with aromatics of oregano, and even if in a steam room you drink half a cup of this herb infusion. As a result, the body will receive a powerful cleansing effect. And if in the rest room you can drink the famous Russian bread kvass, which is infused with oregano! Cocktail, which includes oregano, is a powerful remedy against many skin diseases.

    Recipes for many cocktails include thyme( thyme).This is a very fragrant plant, the herb contains a very fragrant essential oil with a predominance of phenols in it - thymol and liquid carvacrol, tannins, organic acids, bitterness, flavonoids and others. Thyme has a powerful bactericidal effect due to the presence of essential oil. The thymol contained in this oil has a bactericidal effect on the coccal pathogenic flora and bacteriostatic effect on gram-negative microorganisms. In addition, high antimicrotical activity of thymol was also established against pathogenic fungi that parasitize human skin.

    Preparations from thyme( infusions, herbs) have pronounced expectorant properties, stimulate the motor activity of the ciliary epithelium of the upper respiratory tract and increase the amount of secretion, separated by the mucous membranes. The drugs of thyme contribute so

    to the loosening of inflammatory raids, the dilution of phlegm and speed up its evacuation. Thanks to the content of thymol in thymol and carvacrol, thyme preparations( including bath cocktails) are effective in inflammatory processes complicated by pathogenic microflora, immunity to antibiotics. Preparations from thyme also have some antispasmodic properties due to the content of flavonoids in the grass, which is of no small importance in the mechanism of expectorant action.

    Thyme cocktail, paired on the stones;also contributes to the neutralization of the atmosphere from pathogens.

    As a component of bath cocktails is indispensable and St. John's wort, a herb from 99 ailments. In the grass and flowers of St. John's wort contains: flavonoids, coloring and tannins, essential oils, resins, organic acids, vitamins, saponins, and a variety of biologically active substances. The most active compounds in this plant are flavonoids, which have an antispasmodic effect. Preparations of St. John's wort remove spasms of some internal organs, blood vessels( especially capillaries).In addition, St. John's wort has a capillarouck-replenishing effect. Preparations of St. John's wort improve the venous blood circulation and blood supply of some internal organs and have multilateral pharmacological properties.

    Tannic substances of St. John's wort have an easy astringent and anti-inflammatory effect. They also have antimicrobial activity against a number of microorganisms resistant to the action of antibiotics. The antibacterial active

    of St. John's wort is so strong that they act on Staphylococcus aureus and other pathogenic bacteria. Preparations of St. John's wort are applied externally with infected wounds, panaritiums, paronychids, phlegmon, abscesses, carbuncles, boils, ulcers. At the same time, St. John's wort preparations promote the fastest healing of affected skin areas, increase the regenerative properties of tissues.

    Bath cocktails with St. John's wort serve as a good remedy for bronchitis, pneumothorax, lung abscess, purulent pleurisy, angina, with respiratory diseases.

    Very useful are those cocktails, which include inflorescences and a pharmacy - this very ancient drug. Still priests of Ancient Egypt widely used this plant for healing of many diseases, basically skin diseases. Ancient Greek physicians considered the daisy to be one of those plants that possesses the excellent property of restoring pain, soothes seizures, acts as an exciting and firming way, cures a fever and "resolves inflammation in the skin."Greeks believed that the main active substance of chamomile is the bitterness contained in the plant;In addition, they considered essential components of chamomile essential oil, extractives and resin.

    The ancients were very close to those indices that are discovered in the dais with modern medics. Chamomile essential oil consists of the main active ingredient - chamazulin, it also contains carbohydrates farnesen and cadinene, bisabolol alcohols, bizabololoxide and ketoalcohol, caprylic acid.

    flavonoids, coumarins, sitosterol, choline, carotene, ascorbic acid, isovaleric and other organic acids, polysaccharides, a rich set of mineral salts have been found in the flower of the plant.

    The effect of chamomile preparations on the human body is due to such biologically active substances as essential oil, azulene, flavonoids, polysaccharides, minerals, etc. Chamomile preparations have spasmolytic, sedative and analgesic effect, stimulate the processes of regeneration and tissue healing. Chamomile essential oil strengthens and deepens breathing, increases the rhythm of heartbeats, expands the vessels of the brain.

    In folk medicine is very popular plant mother-and-stepmother, used for respiratory diseases, scrofula. Fresh leaves are applied from the outside to inflamed areas, and leaf juice is used for spring treatment for beriberi.

    Leaves of mother-and-stepmother contain bitter glycosides, saponins, carotenoids, organic acids: gallic, malic and wine;sitosterol, ascorbic acid;inulin, dextrans, mucus, tannins, flavonoids.

    Due to the content of a significant amount of mucus in the leaves of the mother, the mother-and-stepmother proves the enveloping effect on the mucous membranes of the mouth, throat and larynx, protecting them from irritation. In addition, mucus, saponins and organic acids soften and dilute the dry secretions of the upper respiratory tract, restore the natural movement of the ciliated epithelium in the trachea and bronchi, promote faster sputum yield.

    In addition, the plant tannins, carotenoids and sterols, have a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect: they reduce hyperemia of the mucous membranes, actively influence the various phases of the inflammation process due to the bacteriostatic properties of these compounds. The pharmacological properties of the biologically active substances of the plant cause a favorable complex effect of galenic preparations of mother-and-stepmother on inflammatory processes in the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, oropharynx.

    Plant preparations, including bath cocktails with this plant, are most effective for laryngitis, tracheitis, chronic bronchitis, bronchopneumonia, bronchial asthma.

    It has already been said above that in some places where there is no growth for brooms, they are made of wormwood, and such brooms have a beneficial effect on the body of a soaring person. But wormwood is an attractive component for bath cocktails. The plant contains bitter glycosides abstin and anabstin, flavonoids, essential oil, phytoncides, alkaloids, tannins, vitamins, mineral salts.

    Drugs from wormwood, including bath cocktails, which include herb wormwood, stimulate the function of the glands of not only the gastrointestinal tract, but also the neuroreceptors of the mucous membranes of the respiratory organs, the sebaceous glands of the skin. Cocktail with wormwood is useful for jaundice, bruises, purulent ulcers, healing wounds. Hydrocarbons released from the waxwood wax are very active, they have a bactericidal effect. Unsaturated hydrocarbon capillin, released by

    from wormwood, is effective in diseases caused by pathogenic fungi. Japanese researchers attribute wormwood extracted from wormwood to active antibiotics. Contained in Artemisia arsumin compound( the sum of lactones), as well as abstinin have anti-inflammatory effect. Abstinine, in addition, helps stabilize immune responses. Polysaccharides of wormwood worms accelerate the timing of scarring ulcers. Essential oil of wormwood has a cardiostimulating effect, excites the central nervous system.

    Special and well-deserved popularity in folk medicine has long enjoyed sage.

    In the sage grass contains flavonoids, alkaloids, tannic and resinous substances, organic acids( olean, ursolic, chlorogenic, etc.), vitamins P and PP, bitterness, phytoncides, a significant amount of essential oil containing pinene, cineole, thujone, boron-Neol, Salvens and other terpenic compounds.

    Anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties of sage are associated with the content in its leaves of tannins and flavonoid compounds, as well as essential oil and vitamins P and PP.

    The anti-inflammatory effect of sage is caused by a decrease in the permeability of the walls of vessels and capillaries under the action of substances contained in preparations from it. Sage also has hemostatic properties. Sage preparations contribute to the inhibition of the vital activity of pathogenic microflora, sweating.

    A bath cocktail containing sage is useful for inflammatory diseases of the oropharynx, nasopharynx and upper respiratory tract, considering astringent, anti-inflammatory, disinfecting

    and phytoncidal properties of the plant. Sage preparations are very useful also for inflammatory diseases of the skin, for the treatment of festering wounds, with light burns and frostbite.

    When using sage in a bath cocktail, it should be borne in mind that sage reduces sweating.

    Some swimmers prefer many others to cocktails, which include anise. And not by chance. Fruits of anise contain fatty oil, an essential oil, which contains anethol, methylha-vikol, anise aldehyde, anisic ketone, anisic alcohol and anisic acid.

    Pharmacological properties of anise preparations, including a cocktail from it, are determined by the high content of essential oil in the fruits of the plant, which has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and expectorant properties. When ingestion of drugs from anise, essential oil is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, stimulates gastric secretion, and then is partially released by the bronchial glands, irritating them and enhancing the secretion of mucus, having a bactericidal effect on the microflora of the respiratory tract. Essential oil of anise has a mild expectorant effect and promotes reflex excitation of respiration, increased activity of the ciliary epithelium of the respiratory tract and increased secretion of the mucous membranes of the trachea, larynx, bronchi. And in general, the highest therapeutic efficacy of drugs from anise fruits is observed in respiratory diseases complicated by various bacterial flora. Anise preparations, including

    and cocktail from this plant, are useful for laryngitis, tracheitis, bronchitis, bronchopneumonia, and whooping cough in children. Anise drugs stimulate expectoration of sputum and its dilution, accelerate the evacuation of sputum and products of mucosal inflammation from the respiratory tract, and have a bactericidal effect.

    Very useful plant - black currant. Her berries are a storehouse of biologically active substances: vitamins, sugars, organic acids, mineral salts( iron, potassium), pectin and tannins, glycosides, essential oil.

    Currant berries are a high-value food and have medicinal properties. But very useful are the leaves of black currant, which have long been widely used in folk medicine: leaf preparations are used for rheumatism and gout, with diseases of the upper respiratory tract, with certain skin diseases. Here and there, branches of currant are included in the so-called prefabricated grass whisks, and in some places of Russia there are lovers of soaring pure currant brooms. Cocktails from currant leaves create a paradise in the steam room, the aroma of leaves can not leave anyone indifferent. Many ailments of the respiratory organs and skin diseases significantly weaken if the currant spirit acted on them in the steam room.

    Above we already wrote about the effect on the body of a lime broom. But linden flowers, which contain saponins, glycoside, hypoperidine, ascorbic acid and carotene, essential oil, a rich set of mineral salts, tannins, etc., are also widely used in bathing.

    Preparations from the lime blossoms increase diuresis, have diaphoretic properties, exert a diaphoretic effectsoft sedative effect on the central nervous system *, slightly reducing the viscosity of the blood.

    Galenic preparations from the inflorescences of linden, including a cocktail of them, have an antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and emollient effect. Decoctions of flowers are used for ulcers, gouty and rheumatic pains in the joints.
