The rue is a bush with a strong but very pleasant smell. This plant has been used for hundreds of years as a medicinal plant. It has a greenish colour and its flowers are yellow. It is known that in ancient times rue was used as a food dressing but due to its bitter taste it is no longer used.
The essential oil of rue is used to soothe arthritis pain. It is also used to treat wounds in epidermal tissues. This requires applying a few drops of rue oil to the skin and rubbing gently until absorbed.
