A specially prepared decoction of lovage is used to treat ascites (dropsy), diseases of the upper respiratory tract, as well as to relieve the inflammatory process in the gastrointestinal tract. With neuralgia or heart disease, a decoction from this plant is also recommended, since it has sedative properties. In addition, it perfectly cleanses the skin and promotes the healing of purulent wounds. With gout and rheumatism, it is good to use alcohol tinctures as rubbing. Beauticians recommend a decoction from the root of a lovage to get rid of age spots. There is even a recipe aimed at combating alcoholism. To do this, you need to take 250 grams of vodka and insist in it with 50 grams of roots of lovage and two bay leaves. Those who used this remedy say that after drinking a glass of infusion, drinking alcohol will no longer be a desire.
