Wild Lettuce x 200
Plant use: The use of Wild Lettuce goes back many thousands of years. The Egyptians used Wild Lettuce as an aphrodisiac and inebriant. At that time Wild Lettuce was associated with the god Min, a Pan-like fertility deity, who was also the God of magic plants. Min is always pictured with stalks of Wild Lettuce behind him and had a whole festival in his honour.
Traditionally Wild Lettuce was known as a sedative and painkiller; and used to quieten coughing and allay an overactive nervous system. Wild Lettuce aids in relaxing the body and producing a euphoric dreamy effect which is conducive to falling asleep.
Wild Lettuce is not recommended for regular internal use as tea as it is somewhat toxic to the liver. Wild Lettuce is a very popular herb recreationally for smoking and smoking blends.
