Both the leaves, and the essential oil obtained from them, are used medicinally and are considered to be antiseptic, aphrodisiac, astringent, diuretic, febrifuge, digestive, sedative, stomachic and tonic

The herb is used internally in the treatment of colds, headaches, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhoea

An infusion is used to make a convalescent bath

Externally, it is used to treat halitosis, a range of skin problems, snake bite etc

The essential oil is used in aromatherapy to treat nervous exhaustion, depression, low libido and frigidity

The leaves are harvested 2 - 3 times a year and are usually dried for oil distillation
