• Traditionally used to help support gravel, jaundice. urinary ailments, indigestion, flatulence and more.
Lovage, also called Love Parsley, Loveroot, Wild Celery, and Sea Parsley, is a native of the Mediterranean region, growing wild in the mountainous districts of the south of France, in northern Greece and in the Balkans. The Garden Lovage is one of the old English herbs that was formerly very generally cultivated, and is still occasionally cultivated as a sweet herb and for the use in herbal health of its root, and to a lesser degree, the leaves and seeds. It is sometimes grown in gardens for its ornamental foliage, and for its pleasant odor. The name of the genus, Ligusticum, is derived from Liguria, where this species abounds.
The root, leaves and seeds are used for its health properties. The young stems, used like Angelica, can be used for flavoring and confectionery. Loveroot contains a volatile oil, angelic acid, which is a bitter extractive. The coloring principle has been isolated by M. Niklis, who gave it the name of Ligulin, and suggested an important application may be made in the testing of drinking water. If a drop of its aqueous solution is allowed to fall into distilled water, it imparts to the liquid its own fine crimson-red color, which undergoes no change; but if limestone water be substituted, the red color disappears in a few seconds and is followed by a beautiful blue, due to the alkalinity of the latter.
An herbal tea is made of the leaves of Lovage, when previously dried, the decoction having a very agreeable odor. Lovage was much used as a drug plant in the fourteenth century, its medicinal reputation probably being greatly founded on its pleasing aromatic odor. It was never an official supportive, nor were any extravagant claims made, as with Angelica, for its efficacy in numberless complaints. The roots and fruit are aromatic and stimulant and have diuretic and carminative action. In herbal health they are used in disorders of the stomach and feverish attacks, especially for cases of colic and flatulence in children, its qualities being similar to those of Angelica in expelling flatulence, exciting perspiration and opening obstructions. The leaves eaten as salad, or infused dry as a tea, used to be accounted a good emmenagogue. An infusion of the root was recommended by old writers for gravel, jaundice and urinary troubles, and the cordial, sudorific nature of the roots and seeds caused their use to be extolled in "pestilential disorders."
