Ruscus aculeatus has mildly astringent, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties. Ancient Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder wrote of this particular herb in his work Naturalis Historia, describing its ability to reduce the swelling in diseased limbs.
It is important to know that this herb is not the same as Broom - Cytisus scoparius - as Broom (or Irish Broom). Broom is also a toxic herb.
