The extracts of this plant exert an antibacterial effect. It is applied as a pectoral remedy. It has traditionally been considered as an anti-inflammatory, both in the form of eye baths or gargles, and in poultices in case of wounds. This anti-inflammatory effect is closely linked to its astringent property.
This plant livesnaturally in marine cliffs, marshes and areas subject to the trampling of cattle, all over the Western and Southern Coasts of Europe, from Sweden to North Africa.
