"Used with other herbals---to dampen down auto-immune
They are working---so not sure if all are good, or only some" -- George (MD)
Agrimony is commonly used as an astringent and hemostatic to inhibit bleeding, restore tone to the stomach and intestines, and counteract flaccidity. It can be used to help support any symptoms associated with bleeding, including blood in the urine and in the stools. It has also been shown to have antiviral properties.
A good antihemorrhagic combination is equal parts agrimony, cinnamon bark and yarrow.
To reduce bleeding, the Chinese use the ashes of burnt hair or mugwort. The burnt ash of agrimony taken internally, and applied externally, is also more effective than using the unburnt herb to inhibit bleeding.
Ointments and boluses are made to shrink bleeding hemorrhoids. Besides its antihemorrhagic and astringent effects, agrimony is specific for irritable bladder and renal pain caused by kidney and bladder inflammation.
In all cases where there is flaccidity and/or abdominal secretions with inflammation, agrimony can be employed. This may include bronchial or pulmonary cough, leucorrhea, dysmenorrhea, colitis, proctit is, ileocolitis and ulcerative stomatitis. The Eclectics also found it effective for erysipelas. Traditional Chinese Medicine regards it as one of the most important herbs for immunity.
Agrimony is typically used to help support hemorrhage, irritable bladder, kidney pains (agrimony with marshmallow root), pulmonary and bronchial phlegm. The active constituents include taimins, bitter glycosides, coumarins, flavonoids, nicotinic acid amide, silicic acid, polysaccharides, vitamins B and K, iron and essential oil. The above-ground or aerial portions of the plant are collected and dried for use in herbal preparations.
Dosage: 6-15 grams taken in a mild decoction or 10-30 drops of the alcoholic extract.
By Infusion: Steep 1 to 2 teaspoons dried herb (or 3 teaspoons fresh herb, gently crushed) in 1 cup boiling water. These herbs work well in combination as a liver support tea:
1 teaspoon licorice root
1 teaspoon milk thistle seeds
1 teaspoon dried agrimony leaves
Simmer root and seeds by boiling in 2 cups water for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, add agrimony leaves, and let steep for another 5 to 10 minutes, or to taste.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
