Wood betony was once considered an herbal "magic bullet" for dispelling a wide variety of diseases. Antonius Musa, chief physician to the Roman emperor Caesar August, catalogued 47 conditions he treated with the herb.
Wood betony can be steeped as tea, applied in external applications, or tinctured. Today it is considered helpful for nervous tension, headaches, and migraines. In spiritual herbalism it is used to promote rootedness, connection, earthiness and a sense of being grounded. It is thought to strengthen the solar plexus. Through this action it also supports stomach, digestion and the nervous system – even the brain. It is believed to reconnect our body’s organs to one another.
