Agrimony - Uses and Benefits

Common Name :  Sticklewort, Cocklebur, Church Steeples, Odermenning

Agrimony is also known as Common Agrimony, Church Steeples, and Cocklebur. It's botanical name is Agrimonia eupatoria. It belongs to a plant family of Rosaceae. The leaves are numerous and very rich in outline, those near the ground are often 7 or 8 inches long, while the upper ones are generally only about 3 inches in length.

Agrimony is an herbal medicine used to treat diarrhea in children, mucous colitis, bladder leakage, and bladder infections. It is also used as a gargle for a sore throat. They are pinnate in form, i.e. divided up to the mid-rib into pairs of leaflets.

The flowers, about 3/8 inch across, have five conspicuous and spreading petals, which are egg-shaped in form and somewhat narrow in proportion to their length. Agrimony contains tannin and a volatile essential oil. Like most samples, the uses to which it is put are remarkably varied. It is considered especially useful as a tonic for aiding recovery from winter colds and fevers.

Side effect:

A case study of several people who regularly used large amounts of an oral product similar to agrimony for many years, found they had a higher incidence of tongue and lip cancer than expected. Cancers of the nose and esophagus may also be more likely in people who use large amounts of tannin.

Both oral and topical agrimony can make unprotected skin more sensitive to sunlight or artificial light in sun tanning parlors. Stop taking your medicine right away and talk to your doctor if you have any of the following side effects. Some other side effects includes as:-

  • Skin hives, rash, or itchy or swollen skin

Dosage

Talk with your caregiver about how much Agrimony you should take. The amount depends on the strength of the medicine and the reason you are taking Agrimony. If you are using this medicine without instructions from your caregiver, follow the directions on the medicine bottle.
