This beneficial plant becomes especially important in the early spring. Fresh juice from the herb can be used to eliminate corns and warts. An infusion of celandine’s fresh leaves can be used to treat other skin problems, such as eczema or fungus. Toss a handful of the leaves into a 1/2 gallon of boiling water and simmer for three minutes. Then let the mixture steep for another 10 minutes. Finally, bathe in the decoction, or use it to rinse affected areas. If the brew seems too weak, prepare a tincture – place the leaves in a quality alcohol for five weeks, then strain and use.
