Agrimony is a nontoxic astringent, or binding herb, that is especially safe for children. Traditionally, agrimony is one of the most renowned vulnerary (wound-healing) herbs. The Anglo-Saxons taught that it would heal wounds, snakebite, and warts. In France, it is applied for sprains and bruises. It is still fully appreciated in herbal practice as a mild astringent and tonic, useful for coughs, diarrhea, and relaxed bowels.

Benefits of agrimony for specific health conditions include the following:

  • Bed-wetting, bladder infections. Agrimony stops irritation of the urinary tract that can increase a child’s urge to urinate. It also works in adults who have had a history of cystitis (bladder infection).
  • Bleeding. Agrimony has been used for thousands of years to stop bleeding and bruising, and encourage clot formation. Agrimony acts by “tanning” skin cells, making them impermeable to bleeding. This action also prevents bacteria from entering the wound.
  • Diabetes. Experiments in animals indicate that infusions of agrimony can prevent the development of type 1 diabetes, although it is not known whether the herb could have the same effect in humans.
  • Diarrhea. Agrimony is effective against diarrhea, especially in small children.
  • Jaundice and liver problems. Agrimony’s astringents exhibit tonic and diuretic properties. Agrimony has a reputation for treating jaundice and other complaints.
  • Skin problems. Agrimony can be applied topically to the skin in places of mild inflammation.

Recommended Use
Agrimony is used in teas or tinctures. Its low toxicity makes it particularly suitable for children’s illnesses. But consult your child’s pediatrician first before giving it to a child. It has been approved by the German Commission E for use in diarrhea, inflammation of the skin, and inflammation of the mouth and pharynx. However, the herb has a high tannic acid content and too much could lead to digestive complaints.

While agrimony is an effective treatment for many forms of diarrhea, it can aggravate constipation. The tannins in agrimony cause pectin fibers to cross-link and bind. Blockage can result if you take agrimony at the same time as psyllium powders, such as Metamucil, or if you take it with prunes or prune juice.

Agrimony affects the immune system. It stimulates the body to produce immune bodies known as B cells. These cells produce complex chemicals known as antigens that attack invading microbes. A number of other conditions, however, result from attacks on healthy tissues by B cells with defects in their genetic programming. For that reason, people with rheumatoid arthritis, myasthenia gravis, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, lupus, Sjögren’s syndrome, or any other autoimmune disease should avoid agrimony. People who are susceptible to sunlight should not use agrimony, as they may develop skin rashes. Those who are taking anticoagulation or high blood pressure drugs should not take this herb. Pregnant and lactating women should avoid this herb.
