Milk thistle

Milk Thistle

 

Milk thistle is commonly found growing wild in a variety of settings, including roadsides. The seeds of the dried flower are used. Medical use of milk thistle can be traced back more than 2,000 years. Culpeper, the well-known eighteenth-century herbalist, cited its use for opening "obstructions" of the liver and spleen and recommended it for the treatment of jaundice.
