Medicinal uses(Warning!)

The whole plant is anti-inflammatory, astringent, diaphoretic and diuretic[3][4][5][6]. It may also have aphrodisiac and anti-depressant effects[6]. It is used both internally and externally in the treatment of laryngitis, upper respiratory catarrh and tonsillitis, whilst in Russia it is used in the treatment of high blood pressure[6][2]. The plant is harvested when it is in flower and is dried for later use[6].
