Alfalfa is a flowering plant in the pea family. It resembles clover, but with clusters of small, purple flowers. It is cultivated all over the world and is normally used as hay for cattle, although it has been used in herbal medicine for over 1,500 years.
This herb is used in spells involving prosperity, money, and warding off hunger.
Young alfalfa leaves have been known to treat digestive tract and kidney disorders. The seeds can also be made into a cataplasm to treat boils.
Alfalfa is also believed to help people suffering from arthritis and water retention.
