Cranesbill General Information
The name "Cranesbill" derives from the appearance of the seed-heads, which have the same shape as the bill of a Crane. The genus name is derived from the Greek word geranos, meaning 'crane'. Their rose, pink to blue or white flowers have 5 petals and bloom from spring till mid summer. The leaves are shaped like a hand and grow on a long stem. The seed pods explode in mid-summer sending seeds in various directions leaving the opened seedpod looking like a little brown flower with petals curled back. This perennial grows form 1 to 2 feet high. The entire plant is erect and covered in hairs.

Cranesbill Uses & Scientific Evidence For
For hundreds of years, Native Americans used Cranesbill as a treatment for diarrhea, dysentery, and hemorrhaging. Early settlers quickly found this remedy not only to be an effective treatment, but it cured illnesses without any unpleasant side effects. Chippewa Indians used the dried, powdered rhizome on canker sores and toothaches. Western Indians used it to treat venereal diseases. Many Indians ate the young green leaves of Cranesbill as food. This plant contains tannic and gallic acid, starch, sugar, gum, and pectin, and has astringent, digestive, diuretic, styptic, and tonic properties.

Today, Cranesbill is used in treating diarrhea, gastrointestinal bleeding, hemorrhoids, malaria, jaundice, tuberculosis, and digestive disorders. It is a mild enough treatment to be used in treating children with diarrhea, cholera, and dysentery. This plant can also be used to stop bleeding and relieve piles and gum disease. A tea made from the root is used as a tonic and as a poultice for treating burns, abnormal growths, wounds, skin ulcers, and swollen breasts. The tea is also used to treat cholera, gingivitis, leucorrhoea, infections, internal bleeding, canker sores, toothache, and soothes sore mouths and throats. Cranesbill is effective as a treatment for diabetes and Bright’s disease. It is also used in combination with other herbs in treating Crohn’s disease, though there are no scientific studies to confirm its effectiveness.
