Garden Loosestrife

Lysimachia Vulgaris

Herbalists recommend a tea made from the plant as an astringent, which helps stop minor bleeding by causing the skin and capillaries to contract; as an expectorant, for bringing up phlegm; and as a gargle. Scientists have not investigated the plant for its medicinal value, and can neither confirm nor refute any of these claims. The rhizome (underground stem) yeilds a brown dye and the leaves or stalk a yellow one.
