Mythology & History

Ancient physicians believed that the herb had emmenagetic properties. The ancient physicians used the wild blister for whooping cough and in general for respiratory diseases. The herb was considered an excellent anti-arthritic drug and for this reason it was also called “mint gout”.

In folk medicine it was believed that it stimulates the nervous system as well as the heart, in alcoholic preparations (liqueurs). It was recommended as an expectorant against bronchial catarrh and was used especially by the people against asthma, especially the elderly, which “opens” their respiratory organs.

Method of preparation

Beverage

Put the herb together with water to boil on low heat for less than ten minutes and strain.

For external use, gargles, compresses and baths use more concentrated tea.
