Aconite General Information
It is believed that the word Aconitum came from the word akone, meaning “rocky” which is the type of area where this plant grows, but according to Greek mythology, Aconite became a poisonous herb when foam dropped from the mouth of Cereberus, the gatekeeper of hell, while he dragged Hercules up from the nether regions. Aconite is also said to be an ingredient of “flying ointments” used by witches to imitate the sensation of flying. Alkaloids in this plant are analgesic and anti-inflammatory. There are many names for Aconite, different people had different names for this herb, as follows:

  • Aconitum Napellus
  • Aconitum
  • Monkshood
  • Cuckoo's Cap
  • Friar's Cap
  • Soldier's Cap
  • Blue Rocket
  • Jacob's Chariot
  • Auld Wife's Huid
  • Wolf's Bane
Throughout history, Aconite has been used to treat pain arthritis, inflammation, fever, skin diseases, and neuralgias. In the Anglo-Saxon vocabularies it is called Thung, which seems to have been a general name for any very poisonous plant. It was then called Aconite (the English form of its Greek and Latin name), later Wolf's Bane, the direct translation of the Greek Lycotonum, derived from the idea that arrows tipped with the juice, or baits anointed with it, would kill wolves - the species mentioned by Dioscorides seems to have been Aconitum Lyotonum. In the Middle Ages it became Monkshood and Helmet-flower, from the curious shape of the upper sepal overtopping the rest of the flower. This was the ordinary name in Shakespeare's day.

The traditional Chinese use Aconite as medicine, it was known as "Fu-Tzu". It is considered an effective stimulanty for the spleen and kidneys. Aconite is a favorite treatment for malaise, general weakness, poor circulation, cancer, and heart disease. Chinese medical practitioners will combine Aconite with other herbs before final preparation as a tea or infusions in order to neutralize its toxic effects

What Does The Plant Look Like and Where Can You Find It
This plant is a hardy perennial, with a fleshy, spindle-shaped root, light colored, kind of pale when young, but as it grows it acquires a dark brown skin. The stem is about 3 feet high with glossy dark green leaves, deeply divided in a palmate manner and flowers straight up in clusters of a dark blue color. The shape of the flower is very special, it especially attracts the Bumble Bee. To be specific the sepals (green parts of the flower forming a seperate part of the group)are purple, the bees are specially attracted to purple. The sepals are also fancy shaped, one of them being in the form of a hood. Hence, the different names. The main habitat for this plant is the lower mountains of the North portion of the Eastern Hemisphere. From the Himalayas through Europe to Great Britain. Aconite is now found wild in a few parts of England, mainly in the western counties and also in South Wales, but can hardly be considered truly indigenous. It was very early introduced into England, being mentioned in all the English vocabularies of plants from the tenth century downwards, and in early English medical recipes.
