Of Pulegio. chap. 132.
PVlegium, Pennie royall, is an hearb with full swéete smell, aud hath that name of Pululando, springing, as Isido. saith, and is more precious than pepper among the Indes. And Plate sayth, that Pulegium is an hot hearbe, and drye in the third degrée: and the vertue thereof is in leaues and floures, and shal be ga∣thered when it floureth. And is double: the tame, that is called Sisinbrium, and the wilde. And either is profitable & me∣dicinable, and hath the vertue to temper and dissolue, consume and wast, & to com∣fort, and to cast out and destroy venim, & to destroy the cold cough, and to cleanse the mother, & to constraine the gate of the wombe: and to bring out menstruall bloud, to comfort the stomack, and to ex∣cite appetite, and to abate ventosity, and to swage wonderfully ach of ye wombe and the •uts, which commeth of colde, & to breake the stone, and to help concepti∣on, as Plinius sayth.
(*This hearbe taken with honnye, cleanseth the lungs and the breast from al grosse humour: the pouder rubbed on the gums, fastneth the teeth.)
