Hydrangea is a genus of 70-75 species of flowering plants native to southern and eastern Asia (China, Japan, Korea, the Himalayas, and Indonesia) and the Americas. They can be either deciduous or evergreen, though the widely cultivated temperate species are all deciduous. As growing research continues to show us the multitude of benefits to be found in using natural home remedies, more people are finding interest in using herbal teas.
Although some forms of hydrangea are toxic, certain teas can be made from specific species of hydrangea which can offer various benefits for those that drink it. This tea is sweet in flavor and usually made from the root of the hydrangea plant.
Hydrangeas are moderately toxic if eaten, with all parts of the plant containing cyanogenic glycosides. Hydrangea paniculata is reportedly sometimes smoked as an intoxicant, despite the danger of illness and/or death due to the cyanide. For thousands of years, Native Americans have used hydrangea tea to help fight various illnesses and ailments. Among these, this tea was first and foremost an aid for proper kidney health. With its ability to treat kidney and bladder problems, hydrangea tea is very much a diuretic, meaning that it can promote and encourage the flow of urine. This is useful for those that are suffering from kidney stones, bladder infections, or other urinary and kidney related problems. Since hydrangea is known as an anti-lithic herb it is suitable for the prevention of kidney stones. Another benefit is that hydrangea tea is advantageous in helping those that suffer from prostatitis.
