Hildegard of Bingen: She is more warm than cold, and she has dye powers because her green is useful. If a person washes his head frequently with its lye, it will drive away disease and prevent him from getting sick in the first place. You can eat the gundel vine in puree or soups, and eat it with meat or other dishes. If your ears sound like the sound of rushing water, let Gundelrebe boil in hot water and, after squeezing the water, tie it warmly around your head. This makes hearing clear in your ears again.
