Agrimonia Eupatoria – Agrimony – Double up with this Liver / Kidney tonic!

? Agrimonia Eupatoria – Agrimony.

Native to Europe, Southwest Asia & North Africa. It may be found inhabiting boarders of fields and hedge banks or damp meadows, pastures and along banks of streams.

All throughout history Agrimony was used as a panacea (remedy for all ailments) as far back in time as the Ancient Greeks & Pliny the Elder.
Agrimony means thankfulness or gratitude in the language of flowers.

Used widely as a healing tonic for mucous membranes as well as its Astringent Properties, with an ability to stop bleeding.
In medieval times Agrimony was used for internal bleeding mixed into a compound with ground up frogs ? ?
