A pretty plant, native of the warmer parts of Europe, and kept in our gardens. It is ten inches high. The stalks are square and whitish: the leaves are oblong and narrow, of a white colour, and woolly surface; they stand two at a joint, and they are indented at the edges. The flowers are small and white. They grow in a kind of woolly tufts at the tops of the branches.
The whole plant is used; it is best dried; given in infusion, it promotes the menses, and removes obstructions of the liver, hence it is recommended greatly in the jaundice. It operates by urine.
