The name hydrangea comes from the Greek word
meaning "water vessel", very appropriate due to its action
on our water processing organs. Hydrangea is indigenous
to the United States. Most of hydrangea’s health benefits
come from the root, which is usually collected in the fall.
The most common use for hydrangea is for the kidneys
and bladder because of its effective diuretic quality which
helps increase the flow of urine. This takes impurities out
of the system and lessens the likelihood of infection along
the entire urinary tract, which includes the kidneys, bladder,
prostate (in men) and urethra.
