Agrimony (Eupatorium)

Squirting cucumber (Elacterium): The juice of the squirting cucumber purges phlegm and melancholic humour. To remedy stomach aches caused by chills, mix with vinegar and apply to the stomach. Applied as ointment to the face, it removes red spots and other rashes.

Christmas rose (Eleborus): The black root of the Christmas rose purges melancholia. To remedy ear worms, prepare a little powder of this plant and apply inside the ear.
