The Story

Celandine: Chelidonium majus (L.)

Why celandine? The name chelidonium is from the Greek word for “swallow” (chelidon) because the plant flowered when the swallows were returning to Europe. We are not sure if this is still the case. Celandine has many valuable uses, but is most notably useful for supporting healthy memory and promoting a normal immune system in healthy adults.

Quality Assured: Our certified organic celandine is responsibly sourced from Croatia. This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for use.
