Garclive was the name given to it by the Anglo-Saxons, who used it to treat wounds, skin blemishes, warts, and snakebite. Internal bleeding was treated with a mixture of agrimony, human blood, and mashed frogs in an early herbal medicine.
This plant has been used to negate spells and cure wounds since the Ancient Greeks.
Harvested in Hungary, it is related to the rose. Agrimony has a strong, pleasant aroma that is sometimes likened to apricots but isn’t as sweet, bearing yellow flowers with egg-shaped petals on spikes coming from hairy stalks.
Agrimony has long been thought to have magickal properties, and one of its most prevalent names is ‘fairy’s wand.’ Agrimony was described as a witch’s treatment for those who were ‘elf-shot,’ or suffering inexplicable disease, in an 18th-century Scottish witch trial. In the UK it was a frequent weapon for clever individuals, and it was planted around the farmhouse to ward off bad magic and wicked witches.
