AGRIMONY

Product No. P01069

Also known as Cocklebur, Stickwort and Agrimonia eupatoria.
Agrimony can be found growing in the British Isles, in hedges, fields, and by ditches. It flowers in July and August, and has green leaves that are silvery-grey on the underside. They are hairy, 10cm or longer, with leaflets of different sizes. The flowers are small, composed of five yellow petals, and grouped closely together on a long, central slender stem, and the fruit is small, subconical and ribbed, with hooked bristles. Each contains two seeds and has an astringent, slightly bitter taste.

The herb is made up of tannins, coumarins, flavonoids, e.g. quercetin, volatile oil and polysaccharides.

Agrimony is used as a mild astringent, diuretic, and tonic. It is also used to relieve minor mouth and throat irritation and pain, mild diarrhoea, and skin irritations such as sunburn.
