Short of a Miracle

European Betony (Stachys officinalis) one of the oldest Herbs in monastic Pharmacopeia has been out of use as an major Woundhealer for long centuries, never the less , disuse does not make Herbs inactive however. My Assistent recently dropped a Bottle with Betony Tincture. Being shocked he severely cut his Hand whilst picking up the broken Pieces of Glass, one Piece pierced his Hand between Thumb and Finger coming out on the other side. He put immediately a saturated compress of pure Betony Tincture onto his wounds and just bandaged it lightly. After one Day the Wound was already closed and on the third Day it was almost untraceable.

So true, just because an herb has fallen out of fashionable use, does not change its beneficial uses! Another excellent share. Thank you!!
