Also know as lavender cotton

Colonial opinion: According to Gerard, lavender cotton "drunke in wine was good against the poysons of all serpents and venomous beasts." Parkinson placed it into "baths, ointments or other things used for cold causes." And Culpepper found it resisted "poison and putrefaction" and was "good against worms ... scabs and itch."
