Bellis perennis, also known as common daisy or English daisy, is a plant native to Europe and widelynaturalized in most temperate regions including North Africa, North and South Americas, Asia, andAustralia. The flower heads and leaves are edible and can be used in salads or soups. They are alsoused as a medicine due to its healing properties. Traditionally, the plant was used topically on wounds,dermatitis, rash, eczema, and bruises. It can be also used for a gargle as a remedy for mouth inflamma-tion and sore throat. Infusions of B. perennis were used to tighten and uplift the skin, and were used tohelp firm breast tissue when mothers stopped breast feeding.
Herbal medicine employs B. perennis as an expectorant, a diuretic, an anti-inflammatory, and a vulner-ary. Scientific researches have shown that perennisosides, the saponins from B. perennis, enhancecollagen synthesis of human dermal fibroblasts. Wound healing activity on animal tissue was verifiedupon topical administration. Together with the anti-microbial activity of the B. perennis essential oil,these results fully support the cosmetic value of B. perennis.
