Petty Spurge

(Euphorbia peplus) This is a poisonous plant, with effects similar to those of Caper Spurge (Long. 1924), and it is even said to have been fatal to man in some cases (P North). Certainly it is dangerous to animals, and there have been a number of records from Australia and New Zealand of fatalities among horses, cattle and sheep (Forsyth). Yet it is known in Gaelic as lus leighis, "healing herb". It is true that it has been clinically investigated for use in cancer treatment. Perhaps the Highland physicians recognised its usefulness in treating skin cancer centuries ago (Beith). Names like Wartwort, or Wart Grass (Drury. 1991) confirm the use of the juice as a wart cure.
