Appalachian Folk Medicine, Cures & Remedies  [Page 12]

Echium Vulgare (Viper’s Bugloss)

The leaves, especially those growing near the root, make a good cordial on infusion, which operates by perspiration and alleviates fevers, headaches and nervous complaints, along with relieving inflammatory pains.

Viper’s Bugloss has long been considered one of the main Appalachia remedies for snake bites.

An infusion of the plant is taken internally as a diuretic and in the treatment of fevers, headaches, and chest conditions. The juice of the plant is an effective emollient for reddened and delicate skins, it is used as a poultice or plaster to treat boils and carbuncles.
