Unknown part

Medicinal uses(Warning!)

The celery-leafed buttercup is one of the most virulent of our native plants[1]. The whole plant is acrid, anodyne, antispasmodic, diaphoretic and emmenagogue and rubefacient[4][10]. When bruised and applied to the skin it raises a blister and creates a sore that is by no means easy to heal. If chewed it inflames the tongue and produces violent effects[1]. The herb should be used fresh since it loses its effects when dried[4].

The leaves and the root are used externally as an antirheumatic[11].

The seed is tonic and is used in the treatment of colds, general debility, rheumatism and spermatorrhoea[11].
