Butterwort – A Carnivorous Plant with Interesting Uses

Butterwort is an insectivorous/carnivorous plant that belongs to the bladderwort family (Lentibulariaceae.)

The English common name butterwort probably comes from the plant’s ability to curdle milk, but it might also be because of its mucilage covered leaves.

Butterwort was once widely used in folk medicine, but much of the knowledge regarding herb’s uses as an herbal medicine has probably been forgotten.

Still, it is known that the leaves, used externally as a poultice, were applied to wounds to speed up the healing process and to get rid of warts.

Furthermore, the herb was used as a remedy for skin rashes, eczema, and ringworm.
