The Ageratum is an annual herb that grows about 2 feet high, and produces small, pretty, pink flowers at the top of its hairy stems. In some countries, it is considered a weed that is hard to control. Ageratum is widely utilized in traditional medicine systems where it grows continuously. In Brazil, an infusion is prepared with the leaves and/or the entire plant, and employed to treat colic, colds, fevers, diarrhea, rheumatism, spasms, and is also used as a tonic. It is also highly recommended for burns and wounds. In other countries in Latin and South America the plant is widely used for its antibacterial properties for numerous infectious conditions and bacterial infections. In Africa, ageratum is used to treat fever, rheumatism, headache, pneumonia, wounds, burns and colic.
