Water Germander

(Teucrium scordium) A French belief was that if a woman wanted to make a man love her, she had to put a piece of Water Germander (if the identification was correct) in his pocket without his knowing it (Sebillot). There have been medicinal uses involving this plant. It was, for instance, once esteemed as a poison antidote (Grieve. 1931). Gerard was careful to point this out, and he also claimed, among others, that it would "mitigate the pain of the gout ...". Later, Hill was recommending it as a remedy "against pestilential fevers". But it seems that the only genuine use was for worms, when the dried leaves, powdered, were employed (C P Johnson).
