Introduction: Wild lettuce is not a vegetable but actually a woodland member of the sunflower family. Wild lettuce is said to have calming or sedative properties.
Parts Used: Dried leaf.
Typical Preparations: Capsules, teas, tinctures. Fresh green leaves are sometimes added to salads.
Summary: Wild lettuce teas and tinctures are used to induce sleep. Historically, they were especially prescribed for nervous excitability and irritated cough in children. Wild lettuce is included in some herbal mixtures used to threat arthritic pain.
Precautions: None. The Ancients held the lettuce in high esteem for its cooling and refreshing properties. The Emperor Augustus attributed his recovery from a dangerous illness to it; built an altar to it, and erected a statue.
