Uses

Toxic parts

All parts of the plant are poisonous in large doses[1][2][3]. The seed is especially toxic[1].

Edible uses

There are no edible uses listed for Consolida regalis.

Material uses

A strong tincture of the fresh seed is used externally to kill lice and nits in the head and pubic hair[1][4][5][6]. It is also effective against aphids and thrips[7]. A good blue ink is obtained from the expressed juice of the petals together with a little alum[1]. It is made from the leaves according to another report[5]. It is also used as a dye[5] and is green when mixed with alum[8][4].

Medicinal uses(Warning!)

Larkspur was at one time used internally in the treatment of a range of diseases, but its only certain action is a violent purgative and nowadays it is only occasionally used in folk medicine[6]. It is of value, however, when used externally, to kill skin parasites[6]. The plant should be used with caution[9][2], see the notes above on toxicity.

The seed is anthelmintic, mildly diuretic, hypnotic, purgative and vasodilator[2]. It has been used internally in the treatment of spasmodic asthma and dropsy[1]. The flowers or the whole plant are mildly diuretic and hypotensive[9]. The expressed juice of the leaves has been considered an effective application to bleeding piles[1].

A conserve made from the flowers has been seen as a good remedy for children when subject to violent purging[1]. The juice of the flowers has also been used as a treatment for colic[1].
