Not to be confused with Ground Ivy (Glechoma Hederacea), a different plant, English ivy is primarily used externally to treat sores, cuts, and other skin problems. Internally it can be used to reduce fevers and cure dropsy. In ointments it is used to treat bee stings and wasp bites. English ivy is in the Ginseng family of plants. English ivy can be poisonous so using it internally requires training and education. Be sure to see your healthcare provider when using it internally for the many conditions it is recommended and effective in treating. Ivy extracts are used in current cough medicines.
