Fumitory
Fumaria officinalis
Uses: Medicinal
Ancient legend had it that the plant was born of smoke rising out of the earth, hence its name. The Roman historian Pliny says its name refers to the sap of the ghostly pale grey-green annual which causes the eyes to water as if from smoke. Used medicinally in syrups and tinctures to cleanse the liver and kidneys, and to improve gall bladder function. Also used externally for conjunctivitis and skin disease. Some claim fumitory extends the lifespan. Excessive doses are said to cause drowsiness.
