ANEMONE  (ANEMONE NEMOROSA)

Family: Ranunculaceae

---Synonyms---Crowfoot. Windflower. Smell Fox.
---Parts Used---Root, leaves, juice.

A beautiful low-growing plant which naturalises itself in open woodland beneath leaf-losing trees and in shady places in rock gardens.

---Medicinal Action and Uses---Medical herbalists use the Pasque Flower, Pulsatilla vulgaris, as a nervine and anti-spasmodic for nervous headaches and asthrna.

The leaves provoke the terms, being boiled, and the decoction drank. The body bathed with the decoction cures the leprosy. The leaves stamped, and the juice snuffed up the nose, purgeth the head mightily; so doth the root, chewed in the mouth, for it procureth much spitting and bringeth away watery and phlegmatic humours and is therefore excellent for the lethargy. Made into an ointment and the eyelids anointed with it, it helps inflammations of the eyes. The same ointment is excellent to cleanse malignant and corroding ulcers.
