Common sowthistle - powerful laxative, anti-fevers, treats diverse skin problems
Common sowthistle (Sonchus oleraceus), weed very similar to the dandelion (Taraxacum officinale). It is also an edible plant, with plenty of vitamins but with a bitter taste when eaten raw. When cooked like spinach the taste disappears. It is used in the treatment of vitiligo, to stimulate menstrual flow, reducing fevers. The latex is used for treating warts. The leaf cataplasm treats skin inflammation. A tea made from the stems is a powerful laxative (solves stall defecation), use with care.
