The butcherbroom is a common, evergreen shrub and native in the Mediterranean regions. It is a perennial shrub with a height from 25cm to 100cm and it appears two genres in two different plants which have smooth, round, green stems. The butcherbroom also has a long history of use in herbal medicine. In the first century, Dioscorides mentions it as a laxative and diuretic herb. In the 17th century, the herbalist Nicholas Culpeper recommended a decoction of the root for drinking and a poultice of the fruits and leaves to help on broken bones. However, this drug has never been popular either in Europe or in America. The butcherbroom is not used much nowadays, but is considered to have a positive effect on varices and hemorrhoids.
