They are used internally in the treatment of disordered stomachs, especially cases of colic and flatulence in children, kidney stones, cystitis, painful menstruation and slow labour.
Externally, the root is used in the treatment of sore throats and aphthous ulcers.
The leaves, either eaten in salads or dried and infused as a tea, have been used as an emmenagogue.
The essential oil from the seeds is used by aromatherapists to remove freckles and spots from the face.
