CELANDINE HERBAL DESCRIPTION
Celandine (Chelidonium majus) is also known as Common Celandine, Chelidonium majus F., Tetter Wort , Eye Herb, Garden Celandine, Swallow Wort, Felon Wort, Wart Weed, Bai Qu Cai, Chelidonii, Chelidonii Herba, Greater Celandine, Schollkraut, Tetterwort, and Verruguera.
The word celandine is a corruption of the Greek word Chelidon, which translates as "a swallow". This refers to the tradition of Chelidonium, which says that the herb blooms when the swallows arrive, and fades when they depart.
Celandine is a herbaceous biennial or perennial plant in the poppy family, widespread in damp, rich soil in the North-Eastern U.S. This plant grows nearly always in the neighborhood of human habitations, along fences, old walls, roads, and hedges, as well as in waste places, in Europe. It is indigenous to Europe, but is naturalized in the United States. It grows to about 1.5 to 3 feet high and has many branching stems. The finger-thick, fleshy, cylindrical rootstock is red-brown on the outside, orange-yellow inside, and the entire plant contains a bitter, milky, bright orange-yellow juice that turns red when exposed to air. The hollow stem is slender, round, smooth, slightly hairy, and swollen at the joints and breaks very easily. The blue-green, divided leaves are alternate, pinnate, with oval and irregularly lobed. The bright yellow flowers have four leaves (petals) and are 1/2 to 3/4 inch across, and grow from April to September. The flowers drop very quickly when picked. They are arranged at the ends of the stems in loose umbels. They yield a pod-like fruit containing blackish seeds. It has an odd and unpleasant odor and a bitter and pungent taste.
For centuries, Celandine has been used as a medicinal herb. This plant is the true Celandine, having nothing in common with the Lesser Celandine except the color of the flowers. It was a drug plant in the Middle Ages and Pliny, the Roman scholar, mentions its healing power, and 14th century accounts state that Celandine was taken in a liquid form for use as a blood tonic. Drinking the liquid was also thought to sharpen sight and other senses, promote wound healing, and treat jaundice. This plant has mild analgesic, sedative, anti-tumor, antibiotic, diuretic, and immune boosting effects.
CELANDINE USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE
Scientific studies have shown Celandine to be effective in stimulating the appetite and in treating liver and gallbladder problems, though it has also been used for other ailments such as stomach spasms, cramps, intestinal polyps, gout, and water retention. This herb is sometimes used in treating chest pain (angina), asthma, and hardening of the arteries. Though there is no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness, the root of this plant has been chewed for relief from a toothache, and the powder from the root applied to the gum to ease tooth extraction. Celandine is used topically for treating skin rashes, scabies, and warts. Even though this plant is said to inhibit the growth of cancers, combat infections, boost the immune system, reduce blood pressure, and ease muscle tension, it must be studied further before a determination of its effectiveness in treating these conditions is known.
CELANDINE MAGICKAL RITUAL USE & LORE
Celandine is an herb of joy and tranquility. It is said that anyone who carries a sprig of Celandine will be protected. Helps the wearer escape unfair imprisonment and entrapment. It is also said that the joy and tranquility will cure depression. In medieval times it was stated that Celandine could be used to be victorious over ones enemies.
Albertus Magnus wrote, "that this formulation required the heart of a mole. Our gardens contain a beautiful Celandine and are overrun with moles; despite their bothersome tunnels and mounds of dirt, moles are children of the Goddess as much as we are."
When burned as incense, Celandine is said to be protective and confusing to ones enemies, and reputed to keep away both witches and the police.
CELANDINE DOSAGE INFORMATION
Celandine comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. Celandine is a very popular medicine in Russia, where it is said to have proved effective in cases of cancer. It is still used in Suffolk as a fomentation for toothache.
Celandine is an alternative, diuretic, and purgative. Constituents include Berberine (the same chemical found in Goldenseal and Oregon Grape Root), Sanguinarine (also found in blood root), the alkaloids chelidonine and Chelerythrin, the latter narcotic and poisonous, also the two nearly allied alkaloids, Homochelidonine A, and Homochelidonine B, Protopine, Coptisine, Stylopine, and a body named Chelidoxanthin, a neutral bitter principle. The root has a much greater content of these chemicals than the above-ground parts of the plant.
Medicinal parts of the plant used include the above-ground whole herbal parts of the plant, dried, cut and/or powdered. It is collected in the wild, from May to July, when in flower and dried. Likewise, the fresh juice. Typical preparations include teas, but more often used as an extract or capsules.
Celandine is used in treating jaundice, eczema, scrofulous diseases, etc. The infusion 1 ounce of the dried herb to a pint of boiling water being taken in a wineglassful doses. For use as a tea, use 1 tablespoon (15 grams) of crushed herb per quart of water. Steep for 15 minutes. Drink 3 cups per day between meals. The infusion is a cordial and greatly promotes perspiration. The addition of a few aniseeds in making a decoction of the herb in wine has been held to increase its efficacy in removing obstructions of the liver and gall.
The standard dose of Celandine is between 12 and 30 mg (2 to 4 grams of extract). A fluid extract is prepared with a dose being 1/2 to 1 drachm. Tincture is 8 to 10 drops made from the whole herb, or of the fresh juice, given as a dose 3 times a day in sweetened water. This is considered excellent for overcoming torpid conditions of the liver. It is given in the treatment of the worst forms of scurby with benefit.
The orange-colored, acrid juice is commonly used fresh to treat warts, ringworm and corns, but should not be allowed to come into contact with any other part of the skin. In milk, it is employed as an eye-lotion, to remove the white opaque spots on the cornea. Mixed with sulphur it was formerly used to cure the itch.
An ointment made from the roots and lard or vegetable shortening boiled together, also the leaves and flowers, have been used for treating piles (hemorrhoids). For other formulations, read and follow product label directions.
CELANDINE SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS INFORMATION
Celandine is generally regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses. There are no known interactions associated with this herb.
The raw fresh juice of the plant can produce poisoning by congesting the lungs and liver and by narcotic action on the nervous system. If using the raw fresh juice of this herb, please consult with your health care provider before use. Not recommended for use while pregnant
GREATER CELANDINE HEPATIC TOXICITY
Greater celandine is a botanical extract derived from a plant of the Poppy family that is typically used for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders and dyspepsia. Celandine has been linked to several instances of clinically apparent liver injury.
Background: Greater celandine (Chelidonium majus) is a plant of the Poppy family (Papaveraceae) which grows wild in Asia and Europe and has been introduced widely in the United States. Leaf extracts may contain up to 20 alkaloids, including benzophenanthridines, protoberberines and hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives. For centuries, celandine has been used to treat gastrointestinal complaints, dyspepsia and gallbladder disease. The chemical compound responsible for the antispasmotic activity of celandine is unknown. Celandine also acts as a mild sedative and it has been used to treat asthma, bronchitis and whooping cough. In recent years, celandine extracts have been used largely as therapy for dyspepsia and gallbladder disease, but it has also been claimed to be beneficial for skin conditions, asthma and bronchitis and as a weight loss agent. No human studies have been done that substantiate the benefits of celandine in these conditions or to define its safety, tolerability and adverse effects.
Hepatotoxicity: Over a dozen publications, largely from Europe, have described clinically apparent acute liver injury attributable to greater celandine (Chelidonium majus). Liver injury typically arises after 1 to 6 months, with jaundice and moderate to marked elevations in serum aminotransferase levels. The pattern of injury is usually hepatocellular and the clinical presentation and liver histology resemble acute viral hepatitis. Immunoallergic features are uncommon, but autoantibodies may be present in low to moderate levels in many cases. The clinical syndrome, however, rarely resembles autoimmune hepatitis and usually resolves rapidly once the botanical is discontinued and without need of corticosteroid therapy.
Mechanism of Injury: Greater celandine extracts have many components, but none of them has been shown to be specifically hepatotoxic. The rare cases of liver injury due to celandine have had idiosyncratic features.
Outcome and Management: Hepatotoxicity from celandine is rare; some cases have been severe, but fatal cases and acute liver failure leading to liver transplantation has not been described. Recurrence with reexposure has been documented in several cases and rechallenge should be avoided.

The aerial parts and roots of greater celandine are used in herbalism. The above-ground parts are gathered during the flowering season and dried at high temperatures. The root is harvested in autumn between August and October and dried. The fresh rhizome is also used. Celandine has a hot and bitter taste. The latex has a narcotic fragrance. Preparations are made from alcoholic and hot aqueous extractions (tea). The related plant bloodroot has similar chemical composition and uses as greater celandine. As far back as Pliny the Elder and Dioscorides (1st century CE) this herb has been recognized as a useful detoxifying agent. The root has been chewed to relieve toothache. It was formerly used by gypsies as a foot refresher; modern herbalists use its purgative properties. Juliette de Bairacli Levy, the Jewish-English herbalist, recommended greater celandine for the eyes, diluted with milk, and the latex to be used for getting rid of warts. Chelidonium was a favorite herb of the French herbalist Maurice Messegue. Helidonium majus has traditionally been used for treatment of various inflammatory diseases including atopic dermatitis. It is also traditionally used in the treatment of gallstones and dyspepsia.
