Product Description

Common Agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria) is in Greek known as agrimonia, fonohorto, asprozaki, agrimea, asproksani.


This useful herb grows in most climates. It can be mainly found in clay soils, on big fences, roadsides, mounds, sunny glades and grasslands. It is a perennial, herbaceous plant growing up to 70 cm. It has a strong rhizome and an erect, hairy, slightly branched stem. Main leaves are opposite, arranged in a rosette. Leaves are pinnate in form and grow along the stem with intervals. Flowers are small, bright yellow and arranged closely on long spikes.


Agrimony contains tannin, bitter glycosides, nicotin acid, silicic acid, iron, vitamins B and K and essential oil which is refrigerant, desiccating, bitter and acrid.


Pliny the Elder and Dioscorides mention this herb in the treatment of hepatic diseases. It was named after Mithridates Eupator, king in the Black Sea area, who was a renowned concoctor of herbal remedies.
