Sanguinaria Herba - This is a weed used by meso-American cultures to treat the loss of blood (haemorrages); the name translates from Latin as 'bloody weed'. According to descriptions made by priests shortly after the Spanish conquest of Mexico, the pulp of this plant, after being crushed, had to be mixed with milk, urine and salt to form a paste that then had to be applied directly over the afflicted area. It was used mostly to stop nose bleeding.
