Oxeye Daisy


Leucanthemum Vulgare

I am have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

Oxeye Daisy has many benefits. It reduces inflammation, histamines, pain and is a relaxant. It helped me with nausea and muscle spasms. It contains pyrethrin so should be used in moderation. Pyrethrin is good at killing lice and for insect control. It can be confused with Leucanthemum Superbum which has more petals that overlap. It is known as the Shasta Daisy. I do not know much about it’s usage. I have never used it. I do know the Oxeye Daisy has relaxed me when I could not sleep. I enjoy the taste of the leaves and only use the flowers when I make tea.






Pyrethrin is effective against herpes.
