The peo­ple call it dif­fer­ent­ly: “bril­liant green”, “bur­ial ground”, “ivy”. And the peri­win­kle is also called unfad­ing. It has creep­ing long shoots with shiny emer­ald leaves that look like lin­gonber­ry leaves, and large pale blue flow­ers with five petals. They say that a peri­win­kle plant­ed in the gar­den will cer­tain­ly bring hap­pi­ness, and placed in a bou­quet — unchang­ing love and a long mem­o­ry.

But I want to add that peri­win­kle also heals. A decoc­tion of peri­win­kle leaves helps with dizzi­ness, high blood pres­sure, headaches, it is also good as a seda­tive.

To pre­pare a decoc­tion, take 1 tbsp. a spoon­ful of leaves, pour 1 cup boil­ing water. Boil in a water bath for 15 min­utes. Cool, fil­ter, squeeze out the remain­ing raw mate­ri­als. The decoc­tion is tak­en 1/3 cup 3 times a day.

An infu­sion of leaves also helps as a hemo­sta­t­ic agent. Take 1 tbsp. a spoon­ful of chopped fresh herbs, pour a glass of boil­ing water, leave for 2 hours, fil­ter, add boiled water to the orig­i­nal vol­ume. Take 1 tbsp. spoon with the addi­tion of 1 tbsp. spoons of red wine 4–5 times a day 20 min­utes before meals. With bleed­ing gums, the same infu­sion is used as a rinse.

As an exter­nal rem­e­dy for ulcers, puru­lent and weep­ing wounds, skin itch­ing, take 2 tbsp. spoons of crushed fresh leaves and stems of peri­win­kle, pour 300 ml of boil­ing water, leave for 2–3 hours, fil­ter and use peri­win­kle infu­sion for wash­ing, as well as in the form of lotions or micro­baths
