Agrimony Herb - Uses And Side Effects

What is Agrimony ?

The Greeks supposedly used agrimony to treat eye problems. The Anglo-Saxons, who called the herb garelive, apparently used it for wounds. One early herbal remedy for Internal bleeding involved swallowing a mixture of agrimony, human blood, and pulverized frog parts. Today, some herbalists recommend agrimony as a throat-soothing gargle for speakers and singers.

Sometimes used as a dye, agrimony comes from the leaves, stems, and flowers of the dried herb Agrimonia oupstoria, which grows in the western United States, Europe, and Asia. Pale yellow in September, this plant turns deep yellow later in the year. Some people use agrlmony as a tea or poultice as well as a gargle.
