RueRUE – Ruta graveolens
Native of southern Europe and cultivated elsewhere.

Common Garden Rue has been used in herbal folk remedies and magick for centuries. It is usually used internally for nerve spasms, neuralgia, trauma (rescue remedies), and women’s cramps (uterine stimulant). Poultice made with rue is used for sore muscles and sore ears. It should be taken very carefully if taken internally. Overdose is possible and its use should always be avoided during pregnancy. Rue tea dose is 1 tsp leaves per cup. It should be slowly sipped, not swallowed fast. The US Food & Drug Administration no longer permits the sale of Rue in the USA.
