Cranesbill is a perennial herb, growing up to 2 feet tall with hairy stems. The leaves, which are arranged in opposite pairs, are usually divided into five toothed lobes. Five-petaled flowers (April-June) are pale pink to rosy purple and bloom in clusters at the end of each stem. The fruits bear a fanciful resemblance to cranes’ bills.
An astringent and clotting agent, cranesbill is used today much as in earlier times. The herb is often prescribed for irritable bowel syndrome and hemorrhoids, and it is used to staunch wounds. Cranesbill extract may also be used to treat heavy menstrual bleeding and excessive vaginal discharge. Because of its tannin content, the rhizome (underground stem) of cranesbill acts as an external astringent (an agent that causes the skin and mucous membranes to constrict) and a hemostatic (an agent that stops bleeding). For the same reason cranesbill is probably effective when taken internally for diarrhea.
