Agrimonia eupatoria L.
Plant Family: Rosaceae
Since ancient times it was used for inflammation of the throat and wound healing. Remember it in cases of tonsillitis, ulcers, fungal infections, rheumatism, lumbago, digestive problems, cirrhosis of the liver and spleen ailments.
Agrimony is an herb in the rose family found near hedges and fences throughout England. Bearing yellow flowers with egg-shaped petals on spikes emanating from hairy stems, agrimony exudes a distinctive, pleasant scent that is often compared to apricots but isn’t as sweet. During the Elizabethan period herbalists began referring to the plant as philanthropos, perhaps because of its beneficial properties, or perhaps because its seeds stick to the clothing of passers by, giving them the “gift” of next year’s plants.
Dried, above-ground parts of the plant, harvested shortly before or during summer flowering.
Herb powder in slurry or decoction, herbal tea, or essential oil.
