No redeeming qualities that I can think of. It's the most common
culprit for hayfever and I think it would be a mistake to include that
in a recipe in a day where so many people would suffer. Best
ingredients of choice would be arnica (for pain), yarrow (for bloom
dispersement), and calendula (for skin repair). I'll be doing an herbal
apprenticeship this year, so I'll inquire about that.
Isn't ragweed an american native?

Hello kind gentles!
I am doing some research on Digby's "bruise juice" (I know, I
slightly out of period). I'm wanting to give some background on
herb he includes and I am having a devil of a time finding
Ragweed other than the fact that many folks are allergic to it.
have any redeeming qualities? I'm trying to figure out what made
include it if it doesn't.
