Chinese medicine often used Agrimony to treat menstrual difficulties and during the middle ages this herb was used frequently as a sleep aid. In North America, Agrimony was used for a variety of ailments by Indigenous people and up until the late 19th century agrimony was used throughout Europe and North America to treat skin conditions, cough, sore throat and diarrhea.
