CUDWEED (FILAGINELLA ULIGINOSA) (GNAPHALIUM ULIGINOSUM)
---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.
