Lovage is used as “irrigation therapy” for pain and swelling (inflammation) of the lower urinary tract, for prevention of kidney stones, and to increase the flow of urine when urinary tract infections or fluid retention is present.
Lovage is also used for indigestion, heartburn, stomach bloating, intestinal gas, irregular menstrual periods, sore throat, boils, yellowed skin (jaundice), malaria, fluid around the lung (pleurisy), gout, joint pain (rheumatism), and migraine headaches. It is also used as an expectorant to loosen phlegm in respiratory conditions.
In foods and beverages, lovage is used as a flavor component.
Lovage is bound to Sun and water. It is mainly a beauty and love herb, but is also associated with psychic sleep, energy, and purification.
Make a Tea of Lovage leaves or root and drink just before bedtime for psychic dreams, or drink a tea to make the mind alert before business meetings or school. Carry it in a sachet or charm on the person to attract love. Place the root in a mesh bag and hold under the tap water when running a bath for cleansing, and for beauty and attractiveness to the opposite sex. Add rose petals to the bath to enhance this property.
