The bitter and astringent aerial portions of the lady's mantle plant can be used to positively influence the uterus, spleen, and kidneys. In addition to possessing astringent properties, the herb is also regarded as a febrifuge. The herb contains tannins, glycoside, salicylic acid and other unidentified substances, and it has been traditionally used to help support excessive menstrual bleeding, leucorrhea, diarrhea, enteritis, bleeding injuries, and as a wash or poultice for wounds.

A delightful and very useful border plant with its pleated leaves and lime-colored flowers that look wonderful in flower arrangements. In medieval times it was thought to have magical and health properties. A. mollis is a native of the mountainous areas of Europe, Asia, and America. It will tolerate a wide range of complaints.

History

The name derives from the Arabic Alchemych which means "little magical one" - so called because of the way that the leaves hold perfect drops of rain and dew. The word mollis means "softly hairy." In medieval times it was reputed to preserve youth and was prescribed for female complaints. The pleated leaves are rather like a little cloak and it became associated with Mary, the mother of Jesus from whence came "Our Lady's mantle."

Characteristics

Lady's mantle is a hardy, clump-forming perennial. The leaves are soft, downy, rounded, and toothed. They are sea-green to lime. The yellow to lime flowers are very small but numerous and carried on branching stems. Height 24 inches. Spread 30 inches.

Growing Tips

Buy small plants, which will soon multiply, or sow the very fine seed in seed trays in the fall or spring and plant out after dangers of frost. If you cut the plants back hard after flowering, there will be a resurgence of fresh green leaves and another flush of flowers.

How to Use

Use the astringent juice from the leaves as a tonic for oily skin or add an infusion to rejuvenating creams for dry skin. Used as a toner, an infusion soothes inflamed skin caused by minor infections and sun and wind burn. It also has mildly bleaching properties while the leaves, soaked in warm water and laid on the face, will help reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Health-wise, this herb has been used in supporting menopausal womenfor centuries. Its actions are due to the herb's natural astringent properties that help to control irregular bleeding. Taken internally, lady's mantle can help regulate excessive or irregular periods, and applied externally, it can be useful for the potential to help support symptoms of vaginal discharge.

Dosage: 3-9 grams in decoction or 10-30 drops of the liquid extract.

Lady's Mantle
Alchemilla vulgaris
(Dewcup, Bear's Foot)

Medicinal Usage

Traditionally, lady's mantle (known as 'a woman's best friend') was used for helping support female ailments, including vaginal discharges, itching and menstrual disorders. Culpeper said that "it helps ruptures, and women who have over-flagging breasts, causing them to grow less and hard." He also considered it to be one of "the most singular wound-herbs," highly praising it for "all wounds, inward and outward." In addition to being valued for its restorative and wound-mending properties, the herb was used to staunch bleeding, and to help support inflammation, bruises, boils, sores and burns. It was also taken as a digestive tonic, and for diarrhoea.

Culinary Usage

The mildly-bitter leaves of lady's mantle were added to salads.

Miscellaneous

A native of mountainous areas of Europe, lady's mantle was reputed to possess magical powers, particularly as, unlike other herbs, its leaves produced big shining pearls of dew overnight. Collected at dawn, the dew, or 'celestial water', was used by medieval alchemists in their experiments to turn base metals into gold and silver. Indeed, its botanical name Alchemilla ('the little magical one') is thought to derive from the Arabic for 'alchemy'. Our Lady's mantle, however, refers to Mary, the mother of Jesus, to whom the herb is dedicated; while the shape of the leaves was supposed to resemble her cloak. Cows that graze on the herb were said to increase their milk production. It is also liked by horses and sheep. The leaves yield a green dye, and were also used in cosmetics.

Medicinal Usage

The root, harvested in spring or fall, and the leaves, harvested as the plant blooms in June, can be used to support health.

A decoction of the fresh root is a powerful styptic that can be used to help fight bleeding. The leaves are also astringent and styptic owing to their tannin content. They are used internally and externally to help support bleeding or profuse menstruation. One ounce of the dried leaves is added to a pint of water for health purposes.

General Herb Information

Lady's mantle is a hardy perennial with elegant foliage and lacy mists of yellow blooms. It grows to 1 1/2 feet tall and is native to Eurasia and sporadically naturalized in North America. The rounded leaves, two to eight inches in diameter, have plaited folds with seven to eleven lobes and tiny teeth. Sprays of small yellow petalless flowers bloom in June, lasting in the far north to August. Folded leaf-like stipules collar the stem. The tap root is stout and black.

Drops of dew form in the leaf folds and cups of stipules, giving lady's mantle an early morning jewel-like sparkle. This dew was thought to infuse subtle health virtues from the leaf - the stuff of alchemist's potions. Alchemilla derives from an Arabic word alkemelych meaning alchemy.

Lady's mantle can be propagated from seed, but the seeds germinate slowly. Self-sown volunteers appear in the garden and can be transplanted in the spring. "Eyes" of the crown can be carefully divided, leaving some attached root for propagating new stock in the spring or fall.

Lady's mantle's taproot likes a deep-dug soil with good drainage. A poor, slightly acid soil will suffice for this plant. It grows in full sun or partial shade and is completely winter hardy. Once estab lished, it requires little care. Plant on rocky inclines that may be hard to reach and maintain.



Lady's Mantle
Alchemilla vulgaris auct. non L. (= A. xanthochlora Rothm.).

Family: Rasaceaea.

Other Names: Alchimille; manteau de Notre-Dame (French); Gewöhnlicher Frauenmantel (German); alchemilla (Italian); pie de leon (Spanish).

Description: A perennial herb with rosettes of lobed leaves and sparse clusters of small yellow flowers. The are somewhat funnel-shaped and shallowly lobed, with conspicuous teeth along the margins. A. vulgaris is a species complex (formerly named as A. xanthochlora). The Alpine lady's mantle (A. alpina and A. conjuncta) is sometimes also used to help support health. It has palmately compound leaves with oblong, free lobes. These plants should not be confused with parsley piert (Aphanes arvensis, previously known as Alchemilla arvensis), a related tannin-rich plant used traditionally.

Origin: Europe, North America and Asia (A. vulgaris) or central, western and northern Europe (A. alpina) A. vulgaris is mainly used, and raw material is imported from eastern Europe.

Parts Used: Dried aerial parts, collected while the plants are in flower (Alchemillae herba).

Therapeutic Category: Astringent, antihemorrhagic.

Uses and Properties: The plant is considered useful in supporting minor cases of diarrhoea, sore throat and externally for sores and septic wounds. Traditional uses include female ailments, especially dysmenorrhoea.

Active Ingredients: High concentrations of ellagitannins (6-8%) are present, including agrimoniin, laevigatin F and pedunculagin. Flavonoids (including a quercerin glucuronide) have also been found.

Health Effects: In common with several other tannin-containing herbs of the Rosaceae, lady's mantle is highly astringent and thus useful to help support mild diarrhoea and sore throat. It may also be of some value as a venotonic to help support vascular disorders.

Notes: Alchemilla alpina can be used to help support menstrual disorders, and as diuretic and antispasmodic medicine, while Aphanes arvensis is used mainly to help support kidney stones. None of these uses have been substantiated by scientific studies.

Status: Pharm.; Comm.E+ (A. vulgaris only).

Preparation and Dosage: For the main indication (diarrhoea), a daily dose of 5-10 g is used. The dried herb and extracts thereof is included in mixtures, ointments, mouthwashes and throat lozenges.

"The good women in the North of England apply the leaves to their breasts, to make them recover their form, after they have been swelled with milk. Hence it has got the name of Ladies' Mantle". So states Sir John Hill who recommends its use also for those frightening "bloody fluxes", so common in eighteenth-century health literature The Compendious Herbal at the beginning of the century commends it for even more evocative ills, "Traumatick Apozems".

Modern commentators (see Encyclopedia of Herbs and Herbalism) suggest that ladies mantle developed a reputation in the Middle Ages out of proportion to its actual use, although this was increased by the fact that the funnel-shaped folded leaves caught the morning dew (Alchemilla = little magical one) which was itself a valuable constituent of many supplements. The lowland Alchemilla vulgaris and the upland species, A. alpina both with soft downy leaves and heads of greenish flowers are the plants of the herbals and are the ones to be grown if verisimilitude is important.

But from a visual point of view a bigger plant from Asia Minor is the best garden plant. This is the lovely Alchemilla mollis, which arrived too late for effective assumption of magical properties. Here the grey-green velvet leaves support a mound of lime-green flowers in early summer. It takes any spot in shade or sun, seeding into cracks of paving and retaining walls. Deadheading may be desirable if it is not to overstay its welcome but spare seedlings are usually welcomed by anyone who sees it. It looks superb billowing about the base of a statuesque clump of angelica.
