The Melilotus vulgaris or Melilot Herb is a perennial which grows to a height of about two to four feet. It is commonly found growing in dry fields and along roadsides throughout Europe. The smooth, erect stems of the Melilotus vulgaris are branched with the smooth and trifoliate leaves placed on alternate sides of the stems. The Melilot Herb plant bears long shoots of small, sweet-scented, yellow or white, flowers. The flower's keel is much shorter and contains a sugary honey. Melilotus vulgaris also grows broad, black, one-seeded pods, transversely wrinkled.
The Melilot Herb gives off pleasant aromatic, emollient and carminative properties. It was a once a popular treatment in medicine as an emollient and digestive and commonly recommended for many complaints. The juice of the Melilotus vulgaris was also used for clearing eyesight, as well as boiled with lard and other ingredients to create an application for ulcers and to help with flatulence.
Trace amounts of coumarin, the active ingredient in some blood-thinning prescriptions, can be found in the Melilot Herb. Melilot Herb is believed to reduce inflammation and swelling through increasing the amount of blood flow in the veins back toward the heart. The Melilot Herb has been used for its wound-healing properties which some consider a wonderful aid for external bruises, hemorrhoids and overall poor circulation in the veins. This is particularly true when associated with pain, heaviness, night cramps, itching and swelling in the legs. Melilot Herb cut and sifted has also been commonly found as a tea for congestion of the lymph system.
