The agrimony herb is a beautiful member of the rose family that bears multiple yellow flowers on a tall, graceful spike. While it is prized for its’ pleasant aroma, it is also said to be useful as a medicinal plant.
The Agrimony Herb In History
Throughout history, people have used agrimony as both a topical remedy and an aid for more serious internal maladies. While some applications may be no longer practical or necessary, it is clear that agrimony continues to provide benefits today.
In 1652, Culpeper recommended various forms and compounds containing agrimony herb for the treatment of gout, as a tonic to be drunk to improve digestion and relieve colic, and even as an aid to ease the removal of thorns and splinters.
Ancient Greeks used the agrimony herb to treat eye trouble, and Anglo-Saxons used agrimony for a multitude of complaints – it was recommended for everything from sore throats to snake bites.
In France, agrimony and other herbs were blended with water into a compound called Eau De Arquebusade. This agrimony extract was used specifically for cleaning gunshot wounds. Eau De Arquebusade is still compounded and used to soothe sprains and bruises.

Better than Agrimony…
People who use herbal remedies often do so with the hope that they can achieve the greatest benefits while minimizing the impact that so many modern drugs can have on the body’s delicate systems. That is one reason DrFloras recommends a complete internal cleanse with The Ultimate Detox Cleanse Kit. Many people are carrying years’ worth of toxins and internal sludge, and may even be infected with internal parasites. All these things decrease the subtle benefits that herbal remedies may provide, so if you plan to use agrimony extract or other natural remedies, it is best to start out with a clean system.
