Just a reminder, on the "Green Wizard Book of Herbal Lore" forum, ALL information and opinions are offered in a historical perspective and are not meant to be a substitute for professional and accredited advice. If you have an illness or condition which appears to be serious, or even life threatening, seek a doctor's treatment immediately.

Many current accepted remedies and treatments began as folklore and/or appeared in historical texts. Doesn't mean they are right, but it doesn't mean there isn't a grain of truth in them either.

It has come up in the Mugwort thread, that some herbal medicinals may have been used for birth control or to end unwanted pregnancies in the past.

I think most of us know how polarizing the subject of abortions are today. In a hope to balance the opinions of each side on this subject, as well as continue to have an open discussion on the knowledge we all will need in the Long Descent, this will be our policy going forward.

Where we run across references in historical lore that a herb was used in this manner, I will list that fact in the "Medicinal Lore" section of the herb's entry BUT will not post specific information on the manner of use or doses. If you wish to explore this further, I believe a private web search is more appropriate.
