The mauve crépue

Ideal for spring drainage cure

A species of mauve , still too little known in Europe, behaves like an exceptional drawer allowing to eliminate quickly and in depth all the toxins of the winter.

Many people appreciate the mauve tea for its softening properties on the gastrointestinal sphere ... nothing is sweeter to the digestive mucous membranes than this wonderful therapeutic flower!

Among these unknown species, or unknown in our regions, the mauve crépue of China, or Malva verticellata , is a very effective depurative, capable, somewhat like chitosan, of both eliminating toxins and returning in the stool the overflow of saturated lipids. Moreover it is also softening, diuretic, emollient, beneficial for breasts and lactation and, of course, laxative.

A particularly detoxifying plant


The mauve crépue of China is a rare and robust variety, about fifteen centimeters, which does not fear the frost. It has its origins in Asia and especially in China, Indochina and Tibet where its culture goes back more than two thousand five hundred years. It grows in lightly wooded areas where shade and light succeed each other, and it prefers clay and well-drained soils.

It is Li Shizhen, the most famous of all Chinese doctors (1518-1593) who, for the first time, studied the therapeutic qualities of the Malva verticellata in depth and detail.

It is from these studies that the mauve crépue could be classified among the most effective herbs to eliminate excess toxins and toxins from the body. And it is also thanks to this doctor that we have learned to use the whole plant: flowers, leaves, stems, roots and seeds, because each of these parts has a specific vocation.

As for Tibetan medicine, it has long used seeds in the treatment of kidney disorders, fluid retention, frequent thirst, diarrhea and pertussis.

Complete cure

The mauve crépue is generally used in a biannual cure of thirty days, at the rate of one cup every night after the meal.

With a sweet flavor, with a slight nutty taste, it can easily be consumed without sugar. Prepared in an infusion of ten minutes, it detoxifies the liver and spleen from the beginning of the cure and, thanks to its ability to moisten the intestines, also promotes the elimination of toxins stored in the whole digestive tract.

All of these virtues, as is the case with most efficient drains, will lead to elimination crises, which will eventually lead to diarrhea, nausea, stomach pain, cramps or transient joint pain; but adepts of naturopathic methods never worry about these phenomena, knowing that this is the normal effect of detoxification of the organism.

After these first elimination reactions, the mauve crépue will slowly but surely drain the excess water and dislodge the residual fats that will disappear by the natural routes, which explains the modification, throughout the duration of the cure, of the texture of the stools which become greasy.

Once the body has been cleansed of the cumbersome enemies of toxins, the skin, reflecting the internal state of the body, will also change, taking on a clearer complexion and adopting a more refined grain. Thus, small apparent defects such as greasy cysts, couperose or venules will diminish.

It is therefore to an absolutely complete cure of elimination that we are dealing with this remarkable phytotherapeutic. But beware, although nontoxic by itself, the mauve crépue , because of its powerful detoxifying effects, is contraindicated in case of pregnancy.
