Rue is commonly known as garden rue or, or Herb-of-Grace, historically used for it's medicinal qualities and and as an insect repellent.

Rue contains alkaloids, which have anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, anti-fertility and antihistamine properties. Rue also contains a plant compound called rutin, which is an antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage.

Rue can fight against fungal infections such as dermatitis and athletes’ foot. Depending on the severity of the infection, rue oil can be used directly on the skin, especially when one is suffering from athletes’ foot. It also provides instant relief from itchy skin.

Pests like mosquitoes, cockroaches and flies cause a number disease. These insects can be driven away with the use of Rue. It can also be used as vaporizers, fumigants, incense sticks and burners in-order to ward off insects.

Rue, in all its forms, should never be ingested directly. But if one is careful about the amount topically, it can safely be used to cure a myriad of ailments (although not at all if pregnant).
