I am not a supporter of self-medication and I do not urge others to refuse the services of doctors, but sometimes there are moments in life when it seems that you should not go to the doctor, but you cannot do without medical assistance. Today I want to talk about the Kalanchoe. Many people grow this plant in their windows, many love and appreciate it very much. I admit right away that I don't like this flower, but they gave it to me, and I have to grow it on the window. This publication will focus on the beneficial properties of Kalanchoe, on the use of this plant in medicine and cosmetology.

Botanical description of the plant
Kalanchoe is a plant of the genus of succulent family of the bastards. Most of the species are shrubs and perennial herbaceous plants. There are annuals and biennials. The largest, Kalanchoe beharensis from Madagascar, can reach 6 m in height, but most species are not more than 1 m in height.
Leaves are thick, more or less pinnately dissected, sessile or with petioles. The flowers are collected in multi-flowered umbellate inflorescences, yellow, white, purple, bright red. All Kalanchoe are popular ornamental plants. They bloom profusely and for a long time.
The genus was first described by botanist Michel Adanson in 1763.
The use of Kalanchoe in medicine and cosmetology
Kalanchoe is widely used in cosmetology and medicine, but you need to be careful with some species, for example, it is known that Kalanchoe schizophilla has abortive properties. In pharmacological terms, the juice of Kalanchoe pinnate and Kalanchoe Degremon is best studied.
The juice of K. pinnate has anti-inflammatory properties, inhibits the development of the inflammatory process, improves the healing of burns, frostbite, aseptic and infected wounds. Its use helps to cleanse wounds from pus and necrotic tissues, accelerates wound healing, and helps to form more delicate scars. In addition, the juice has a bactericidal effect.
In places of wild growth of Kalanchoe, local residents use Kalanchoe for headaches, rheumatism and many other diseases. Kalanchoe is a versatile plant used in all areas of medicine. With the help of Kalanchoe, diseases are treated: of the cardiovascular system, kidneys, bladder and urinary tract, gastrointestinal tract, and many other external and internal diseases.
In self-care with the help of Kalonchoe, you can get by at lower costs and not buy expensive creams and lotions. Kalanchoe, with its antibacterial effect, can be helpful in cleansing the skin. The vitamins and minerals that are part of the Kalanchoe will have a beneficial effect on the skin if you use Kalanchoe masks.
But no matter how useful this plant is, in inept hands it can lead to very undesirable consequences. Therefore, use it in moderation, with knowledge and after consulting your doctor. If you're unsure, it's best to postpone self-medication.
