Hildegard von Bingen: For those who have a sick stomach, it is good to eat raw or cooked. But if you are healthy, avoid them completely. But if a fever occurs and the person has pain in the brain, he should crush 1 part mallow and 2 parts sage in a mortar and add a little olive oil and make a paste out of it. Apply this to your forehead and neck. Place a cloth over it and do this for three days. To increase eyesight, collect the dew on the flowers and leaves and spread it around the eyes and on the eyelids and then sleep a little.
