Family: Compositae

---Synonyms---Cotton Weed. March Everlasting.
---Part Used---Herb.



---Medicinal Action and Uses---The plants are all astringent, binding or drying and therefore profitable for all defluxions of rheum from the head and to stay fluxes of blood. The decoction is made into red wine or the powder is taken. It stayeth the immoderate courses of women and is also good for inward and outward wounds or bruises and helpeth children with ruptures or worms. The juice of the herb, as Pliny saith, is a sovereign remedy against the mumps and quinsy.
