Fumitory Herb (Fumaria officinalis)Latin Name: Fumaria officinalis
Common Names: Fumitory Herb
If the name "fumitory herb" sounds like it refers to "fumes" or smoke, you're right. To the ancient Greeks who gave it the name which means "smoke," the leaves of Fumaria officinalis appeared as mist or smoke rising up out of the ground.
Dried Fumitory Herb was among those medicinal herbs that were part of the Roman physician's apothecary. During the 1st Century of the Common Era, Pliny the Younger wrote that an ointment made from fumitory herb extract could improve eyesight; his Greek contemporary Dioscorides noted that a decoction of Fumaria officinalis when drunk acted as an effective diuretic.
Natural herbs such as Fumaria officinalis were sold in the pharmacies of Elizabethan England (known as apothecary shops in those days); syrup made from c/s Fumitory Herb Extract was said to stimulate liver function and treat some skin conditions. Recent research suggests that it may help in the treatment of hypertension and some heart conditions as well, though these results have yet to be confirmed.
