The herb was popular in European herbal traditions and is still used today. The herb is valued for both it astringency and as a bitter tonic. As tannins are water soluble, agrimony is often made into an infusion (tea). A strong tea is also used as a gargle or a skin or hair wash. Other preparations include tinctures and skin ointments.

To make a tea, pour one cup of boiling water over 1 to 2 teaspoons of agrimony herb, let steep for 5 minutes, then strain. Drink two or three times a day. Adding a teaspoon of chamomile or peppermint to the tea will improve the flavor and can increase the effectiveness of the tea.
