It can be applied in case of bad digestion, menstrual pain, but also to soothe tendinitis, sprains, rheumatism, soreness and stiffness of wrists, ankles and spinal column and eye strain. In small quantities, it is possible to add rue leaves to flavor your dishes.

Finally, it is better not to handle the rue with bare hands because it may cause redness and blisters.
