Botanical Name: Potentilla erecta

Before the Roman priests arrived in the northlands bearing the "gode-spel" of the Whitechrist, followers of the old ways used Cinquefoil herb in order to drive off evil spirits; used to stuff a "dream-pillow," dried Cinquefoil herb could bring night-time visions of one's future mate; burned as incense, it was a help to the Wise Ones in divination.

While that colorful history of Potentilla erecta may be questionable, the fact is that Cinquefoil herb is one of those organic herbs that is astringent and contains high levels of tannin, which is one of the beneficial compounds found in red wine. Aside from its use in "uuyche-craeft" and "magick," organic Cinquefoil herb has been used with other beneficial herbs for a wide range of ailments. Because of this natural herb's astringent quality, it is effective as an ingredient of mouthwash.
