European sanicle is a perennial plant commonly found in shady, moist places in the deciduous forests of Europe.

Small, white to reddish flowers grow in compound umbels from May to July. Later the plant produces a globular fruit with hooked prickles.
Astringent, expectorant, styptic.
European sanicle tea helps to relieve mucous congestion in the chest, stomach, and intestines. As a gargle and- mouthwash, it is good for mouth and throat inflammations and sores. It is sometimes used externally to treat skin eruptions, scrofula, and suppurating wounds. The plant also has a mildly styptic action which makes it helpful for internal hemorrhage
