Medicinal Use of Cobweb Houseleek

Dummer. ゛☀
Sempervivum arachnoideum (Cobweb Houseleek, Spider Web Hens and Chicks) is low-growing, evergreen, perennial succulent, native to the mountain of Europe from the Pyrenees to the Carpathians.

The leaves of Cobweb Houseleek are emollient, haemostatic, ophthalmic and sedative.
The crushed plant, or its juice, is applied externally to boils, wounds etc and is also used to stop nose bleeds. The slightly warmed juice has been used to relieve ear inflammations and toothaches can be relieved by chewing on the leaves. When macerated and infused in vinegar, the plant can be used to get rid of warts and corns.
The leaves are harvested in the summer and are best used when fresh since they are difficult to dry properly. The leaf pulp is used to make a cooling face mask for reddened or sunburnt skin.
