Its tea is used to treat diarrhea, kidney problems and respiratory infections. The essential oil distilled from fresh plants is used to expel intestinal parasites. Follow the dosage instructions for wormwood to use it for this purpose. Fleabane was traditionally used for diarrhea. Even severe cases of diarrhea can be arrested by drinking a tea of this common herb. It has also been found useful in treating arthritis, when used as a semi-homeopathic remedy or a tea. If an arthritis sufferer takes Cascara sagrada to ease pain, but then gets diarrhea, fleabane can stop the diarrhea. The two may be combined into one remedy for most effectiveness. Fleabane has been used around the world as an insect repellent, parasiticide, and insecticide against everything from fleas, mosquitos, flies, spiders, and many other insects.
