A very pretty wild plant with daisy-like flowers, and narrow dentated leaves. It grows two feet high. The stalk is round, firm, upright, and but little branched. The leaves are very numerous, and they stand irregularly; they are an inch or more in length, and very narrow, rough to the touch, and of a bright green. The flowers stand at the tops of the stalks, so that they form a kind of round head; they are less than daises and their leaves broader.
The leaves of sneezewort, dried and powdered, taken by way of snuff, are excellent against the head-ach. The roots dried are almost as fiery as pellitory of Spain, and they cure the tooth-ach in the same manner. A piece held in the mouth, fills it with rheum in a minute.
