March 2017 – Copious Coltsfoot



Often referred to as filius ante patrem “son before father” because the flowers bloom and mostly die before the leaves appear, Coltsfoot has been used for thousands of years as medicine. A portrait of a Coltsfoot flower hung over a doorway signified apothecaries and pharmacies of old in many European countries.

A reputation tarnished by the discovery of pyrrolizidine alkaloids, Coltsfoot has none the less stood the time of time for a first rate herb dealing with coughs. We’ll discuss the uses and cautions of using Coltsfoot in this month’s issue.
