There are anumber of different woundworts out there, this particular one is Hedge Woundwort..

As the name suggests this plant isused in healing wounds. Made into a compress or ointment it has great antiseptic properties and is also a great styptic and indeed was particlularly used for just this purpose in County Galway,as a matter of fact some herbalists say it rivals Yarrow in it's blood staunching abilities!
A good one to know.


  1. I'll have to check to see if they grow here in Finland. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Square stem & Opposite leaf? Looks like a Labiatae, but could also be a Mint, even a Nettle.

    1. I do think you're right,if I can remember properly it's a member of the mint family and closely related to the dead nettles..I'll check it out to be sure.
