From Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe by Sandra Gulland:
(the 2nd in the series on the life of Josephine)


"I pushed forward the list of herbals (linden blossom, wormwood, coltsfoot) that a doctor in Milan had prescribed, the tea of aloe, gentian root and jalappa.
'I also consulted a midwife, who gave me uterus powder.' I declined to tell him about the Gypsy I'd gone to in Italy- the one with a well-picked savin bush in her vegetable garden- and the rue tea Mimi had persuaded me to try."
