Bardane - Burdock
Arctium minus

Bardane Arctium minus Burdock

BARDANE. Il n’est point de terre inculte ou cette plante ne vienne en abondance. Elle se multiplie de semences en Mars.

La bardane est diurétique, sudorifique, pectorale, hystérique, vulneraire & fébrifuge. La décoction des feuilles purisie le sang & soulage ceux qui ont des maux vénériens. On se sert de ses feuilles cuites sous la braise, pour appliquer sur les endroits où la goutte se fait sentir. On l’ordonne en tisane dans les petites véroles & les fiévres malignes. On en fait des cataplasmes avec le son & l’urine, pour résoudre les tumeurs.

BURDOCK. There is no wasteland where this plant does not come in abundance. It multiplies from seed in March.

Burdock is diuretic, sudorific, pectoral, hysterical, vulnerary & febrifuge. A decoction of the leaves purifies the blood & relieves those who have venereal ailments. We use its leaves cooked under the embers, to apply on the places where gout is felt. It is ordered in herbal tea in smallpox & malignant fever. They are made into poultices with bran & urine, to resolve tumors.
