This plant, the most esteemed of all, produces a high angular stem two cubits; and from the roots she throws jagged leaves, and quite similar to those of Lapathum (Patience). The seed is purple.

Pliny - Natural History

Given the list of physical properties of these chemical constituents we want good believe. Especially since this plant is still little studied, the chemical composition above is not exhaustive, and even if it were certain substances have not yet delivered all their secrets, and it is with astonishment that have read that some molecules are fighting the AIDS virus, which sometimes seems the result of very recent studies.
The list of these 47 virtues is reported to us by another between Culpeper in his "Complete Herbal" 1653:
The grass is attached to the planet Jupiter, and the sign of Aries. Antonius Musa, physician to Emperor Augustus Caesar, wrote a whole book on the virtues of herbs, among other virtues says it, it preserves the liver and body of men of the dangers of epidemic diseases, and also of witchcraft, it helps those who are disgusted and can not digest their food, those with low stomach acid and recovered [...] it helps against jaundice, epilepsy, paralysis, convulsions or tendinitis , gout and those who are subject to edema, those with migraines [...] the powder mixed with honey is good for any kind of cough or cold snap, raspy breathing or breathing difficulties [...] the decoction made with mead and some warbler and mint good for those with putrid fevers [..] and to remove blood and fluids [...] the same decoction made with wine and drunk, kills worms, opens liver and spleen obstruction, heal [...] pain in the back and sides, intestinal pain, colic, and mixed with honey purge the stomach, helps cause the rules [..] and deliveries . It also helps to expel clots, bladder or kidneys. Decoction with wine swished in the mouth, cures toothache.

It stops the bleeding from the mouth and nose and helps those who spit blood, and those holes or have a break, and it is good for those who are wounded in a few ways. The green grass bruised, or the juice applied to a wound internal or external to the head or body, soigneras quickly and shall shut [the wounds], as each veins or sinuses that are cut and broken bones or Assemble breakage, splinter or who are entered in the body. It is no less profitable for old wounds or ulcers, and even sinus cavity. But some council to put a little salt in these cases, applying it with lard, it helps them festering wounds, burns and other and shoot. Smoke or even warm decoction received through a chimney in the ears, relieves of these sentences, to destroy and cared for the wounds of those. The juice does the same.
This is a really valuable grass, it is certain, especially adapted to be kept in the house, both in syrup, preserves, oil, ointment and plaster. The flowers are usually retained.

Traditionally the plants harvested in the morning, early, with a dry day because the plant must not be wet for a magical use it adage saying a word to see the effects of plants and use we want to do, and Albert the great said: we must know that uprooting, will be called the virtues of grass and the use that we want to do.
Albert the Great
One can use a generic formula as that proposed by Hildegard of Bingen:
I cut your greenness because you purify all moods that lead man on error paths and injustice by the living Word who made man without regret.
St. Hildegard of Bingen - Pound subtleties
However there are specific prayers for betony, and we find these prayers addressed to the plant that may be the hymn attributed to Aesculapius which Albert the Great said it was used to ward betony which was used for operations .
"Betony, you who have been first discovered by Aesculapius or the centaur Chiron, be favorable to my prayers. I implore you, powerful herb, for the one who ordered you to be created, and for you to serve a host of remedies, please help to compose the 47 remedies that here. "
Antonius Musa
Magic use:
There are many books that talks about his magical use, the best known is certainly that of Bingen hildegarde that gives it properties for less surprising:
"If someone is so foolish and stupid that all knowledge make him defect, we must crush of betony and thus put on his chest for the night with a cloth over until the morning, often repeated and to find the knowledge." [...]
"If a man has been deceived by a woman or a woman by a man with magical practices or has been a victim of some trick of this kind, or was bewitched by species of fantastic or evil incantations, so that man bewitched and burns with love for the woman or the woman for man, look of betony that has not yet been used for any medicine or filter for if any drug of this kind was done with it , it is worth nothing in medicine since it was rendered inactive by incantations. When it was found, collect leaves, place a sheet in each nostril sheet under the tongue, hold a sheet in each hand , place a sheet under each foot and watch betony with all the force of his gaze from his body; repeat often until we get better we will be cured of this madness in love, provided they drink nothing, nothing. or eat anything into the body that can excite passion. " [...]
"That is usually tortured by bad dreams take of betony with you by going to bed and in his sleep, and he noted that it is less prone to fantasies of dreams."
Hildegard of Bingen
Franz bardon in his practice of magic evocative, offers incense to the operations of jupiter am from betony. Generally and beyond the use of bétoine by magical correspondences, the plants are used as protection and purification. Thus in Wicca:
Betony is added to mixtures and incense purification and protection, and it is traditional to the summer solstice to burn on a hot coal, and jump through the smoke to purify the body from diseases and demons .
To protect a home, we grow the betony in the garden and scatters around doors and windows. This forms a sort of protective wall around the property, through which no harm can happen.
Betony is also a good plant wearable when making amorous advances to someone. And if you want to reconcile a conflict in couple, you can add betony in their food.
When it concerns itself betony protects poisoning, strengthens the body and is known to cure the "evil elves"
