Rue is dynamic herb who certainly lets you know of its prescence. Historically a common herb in Europe, it is used as a rubefaciant to increase redness and warmth to the surface of the skin. It is also great for getting rid of parasites.
It is used for digestion problems including loss of appetite, upset stomach, and diarrohea. It is also used for heart and circulation problems including heart palpitations and “hardening of the arteries” (arteriosclerosis). Some people use rue for breathing problems including pain and coughing due to swelling around the lungs.
Rue has been used to relieve the pain associated with the physical symptoms of complaints such as gout, rheumatism, and sciatica. Along with alleviating the uncomfortable effects of gas and colic, rue was thought to expel worms from the body.
Throughout the years of its use, rue has been used to promote menstruation. It is also used as a digestive tonic and to stimulate the appetite. The herb has a very distinct taste and flavour, though it is edible and often used in salads.
