Blessed Thistle Botanical name Cnicus benedictus, sym. Centaurea benedicta
Today, blessed thistle is prepared as a tea and used for loss of appetite and indigestion; and to treat colds, cough, fever, bacterial infections, and diarrhea. It is also used as a diuretic for increasing urine output, and for promoting the flow of breast milk in new mothers.
Blessed thistle is not the same as milk thistle (Silybum marianum).
