Heather (Calluna vulgaris) is a low-growing perennial shrub, found widely in Europe and Asia Minor. It is the dominant plant in most heathland and moorland in Europe, and in some bog vegetation and acidic pine and oak woodland. Heather is evergreen and microphyllous, i.e. possessing scale-like leaves to minimise water loss through transpiration - a key factor in the extreme conditions in which this plant often grows. In phytotherapy, heather is used for the treatment of wounds. Distillate of blossoms was specifically used for eye care. The main effects of heather blossoms and its use in the treatment of skin irritations and anti-seborrhoeic effects are related to the active ingredients, which are arbutin, flavonoids, proanthocyanidins, gallotannins, triterpenes and iridoids.
