Rue, Garden
Ruta graveolens
(Herb of Grace; Herbygrass)

Medicinal Usage

Rue was used to help support headaches, strained eyes, colic, indigestion, flatulence, heart palpitations and menstrual problems. Externally, the herb was applied to sprains, bruises, rheumatic pains, joint pain, chilblains and skin problems. Pliny said it was one the Roman's chief nutraceutical plants, and "an antidote for all poisons". He also said that it was eaten, with bread and cress, by engravers and painters to improve their vision. In large doses the herb is poisonous. Even handling the leaves can cause blisters. It should not be taken during pregnancy.

Culinary Usage

Rue, a strong aromatic herb, was used to give a bitter flavour to foods and alcoholic drinks, especially grappa. It was also added to salads.

Miscellaneous

A native of southern Europe and the Mediterranean, rue was introduced into England by the Romans, who not only believed that it improved eyesight, but that it had the power to bestow second sight on those who consumed it regularly. Indeed, it was for these vision-enhancing powers that Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo claimed to have taken the herb. The name is derived from the Greek for to set free, a reference to its efficacy as an antidote, or release from poisons. As a symbol of sorrow and repentance, rue was known as 'herb of grace' (for to Christians true repentance leads to God-given grace). Brushes of rue were used to sprinkle holy water in exorcisms and before a Mass, For Muslims the plant has a special significance, in that it is the only herb said to have been blessed by Muhammad, The phrase 'rue the day' comes from the custom of throwing a bunch of rue in the face of one's enemy, while cursing them. The herb was also worn for luck, and as a protection against witchcraft, the 'evil eye' and the plague. In medieval times, rue was placed near magistrates to protect them against gaol fever brought into court by prisoners. It was also hung inside houses to repel insects. Listed by Aelfric, the plant was used in perfumes and cosmetics.



Besides an essence, the plant contains an acid and a coloring matter, rutin. The fresh leaves when crushed cause violent irritation of the skin. Taken internally, Rue is a poison. A slight dose is a stimulant and useful antispasmodic in windy colics in particular. One variety is believed to make the hair grow and was long used by the Egyptian women for this purpose.

The bitter and pungent aerial portions of rue (or garden tue) have beneficial health effects for the liver, spleen, nerves, tendons, uterus, and the circulatory system. Antispasmodic, emmenagogue, stimulant, and rubefacient properties have been confirmed in laboratory research. Rue is traditionally used for spasms, neuralgias and cramps, menstrual cramps, and earaches. Biochemical analysis of the herb has revealed the presence of volatile oil, flavonoids, rutin, hypericin, tannin, pectin, and choline.

Rue is used in supporting nervous spasms, neuralgia, trauma, cramps, and to relax strained muscles and tendons. As such it is applied externally as liquid extract or oil of rue. It is also taken internally as well but should be used moderately. A few drops of rue oil (made by macerating the herb in olive oil) can be applied to a wad of cotton to help support earaches in children or adults.

The Chinese use liquid extract of rue for sedation, supporting rheumatic pains, increasing local circulation and reducing swelling.

Given in small doses of one-half to one teaspoon at a time, the extract helps support menstrual cramps and promotes blood circulation through the female reproduction organs. It should strictly be avoided during pregnancy.

Dosage: One teaspoon of the leaves m infusion, 10-15 drops of the liquid extract, externally as needed.

Rue
Ruta graveolens L.

Family: Rutaceae.

Other Names: Herb of grace; rue (French); Weinraute (German); ruta (Italian); ruda común (Spanish).

Description: Rue is a woody, strongly aromatic, perennial shrub (about 1 m), bearing irregularly divided, compound leaves covered with minute, translucent glands, clusters of small yellow flowers and four-lobed fruit capsules. The Mediterranean Aleppo rue (R. chalepensis) is traditionally used in a similar way.

Origin: Southern Europe; commonly cultivated in many parts of the world.

Parts Used: Dried leaves (Rutae folium) or dried, aboveground parts (Rutae herba).

Therapeutic Category: Traditional tonic.

Uses and Properties: Rue is traditionally used to help support a very wide range of ailments, including menstrual disorders, spasms, loss of appetite, dyspeptic complaints, circulatory disorders, fever, high blood pressure, heart palpitations, inflamed mucosa, toothache, hysteria, joint pain, sprains, injuries and skin problems. It can be been used as a uterine stimulant and for inducing abortion - a dangerous practice that has led to fatalities. Rue was formerly used to improve and stabiise wine of bad quality.

Preparation and Dosage: Extreme care should be taken because rue can cause severe photodermatitis. It is toxic and abortive if taken in high doses. Bruised leaves may be placed on a tooth and in the ears to alleviate pain.

Active Ingredients: A large number of chemical compounds are known from R. graveolens. Examples of interest are the coumarins (coumarin, herniarin, gravelliferon, rutaretin), furanocoumarins (bergapten, psoralen, rutamarin), furanoquinoline alkaloids (dictamnine, skimmianine, rutacridone and various derivatives) and the flavonoid rutin (5%). Methylnonyl ketone (2-undecanone) is a major component of the volatile oil and can be used in perfumery and flavourings.

Health Effects: Reported antispasmodic, anti-exudative, analgesic and ion channel inhibiting activities are probably due to furanocoumarin and furanoquinoline alkaloids. Rutin is a well-known capillary protectant, and can be used together with coumarins as a supplementary product for chronic venous health issuess.

Status: Traditional health; Pharm. (now obsolete).



Medicinal Usage

Health-wise,rue has been tried for its diaphoretic, antispasmodic, emmenagogic, stimulant, and mild sedative properties. Rue may also be an anaphrodisiac and an abortificant. Rue has been used as a disinfectant, to break fevers and colds, support toothache, and as an antidote for insect and snake bites.

The plant contains numerous alkaloids, bergapten - a coumarin - and rutin (vitamin P). The oil contains methyl-n-nonyl ketone as its main component, which is a base for perfume chemicals. Rue oil supports spasms in smooth muscles and is an effective disinfectant. Rutin decreases capillary permeability and fragility and studies with X-rays in mice have shown it to be protective against irradiation.

General Plant Information

Rue is a beautiful, lacy, herbaceous perennial with a woody base. Native to the Mediterranean, it grows to a height of three feet. The finely divided fern-like leaves distinguish the plant, earning it the name "herb of grace?" The leaves are in alternate arrangement on the stems. The dissected leaf segments are oblong or spatular shaped, up to one-half inch long, smooth, glaucous, bluish-green, and dotted with oil glands.

The comb-like inflorescence of yellow-green flowers appears from late spring to autumn. The one-half inch diameter, five-parted corolla surrounds a green center, appearing on close examination to be similar to citrus fruit skin. Citrus fruits are in the rue family. 'Variegata' has creamy white mottled leaves. 'Jackman Blue' has a dense compact growth and blue foliage.

Propagate by stem cuttings or root division in spring or plant by seed. Seed germinates readily and self-sows freely. In southern regions where plants may become several feet wide, give seedlings two foot spacings. In the North, space plants at one-foot intervals.

Rue is not particular about soil . A poor, well-drained soil with a pH of 5.8 to 8 will suit rue. Full sun is preferable. Some gardeners must approach this plant with caution as the juice can cause a rather unpleasant dermatitis with irritating burning, reddening, and blistering. The condition looks much like poison ivy rash.

Gather the herb before it flowers. Rue's culinary use is limited. The leaves can be used very sparingly in salads and have been used in pickles. Rue has a bitter flavor suggestive of black pepper. Since the time of Greek naturalist, Dioscorides, (first century AD.) it has been known that internal consumption of rue may be dangerous to pregnant women.
