Fumitory is a small climbing herb with weak stems, deeply indented leaves, and spikes of small flowers of a pinkish hue, topped with purple or, white. It is native to Europe and North Africa, but grows quite well all over the planet. The ancient Romans, according to the historian Pliny, named this useful plant Kapnos, which means smoke, because the juice of the plant brings on such a flow of tears that the sight becomes dim as with smoke. It was also said that the plant did not grow from a seed, but from the fumes rising up from the underground.
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.
Infusions and teas, and can be used in capsule or extract form. A water infusion of this herb is used as a pack or compress for skin problems.
NOTE: Like many other herbs, a little fumitory is a stimulant and a lot of fumitory is sedative so avoid excessive use.
In magick this herb is generally used for all types of banishment and exorcism. It is particularly powerful when used as an incense or smoke to cleanse large areas or houses.
