Traditional and historic uses of the substance.

In ancient times the leaves were infused in wine or vinegar and used as a heart tonic.  The plant is also an effective vulnerary for treating wounds, either taken internally as a tea or used as an astringent external wash or healing salve.  Small Burnet is still in common usage as a culinary herb.  The young leaves especially are tender and impart a cucumber-like taste to salads, dressings and cheese.
