Alkanet

Anchusa Officinalis

Alkanet is principally employed in herbal medicine today as an expectorant (for bringing up phlegm) and as an emollient (for soothing and softening the skin). Pharmacologists find no evidence that it acts as an expectorant; they have not evaluated its use as an emollient

There is evidence that alkanet may cause cancer if taken intentionally over a long period of time.
