The flower heads are collected between July and August, dried and stored for the winter. The flowers whole, or ground, are boiled in water and the decoction is given for any lshkama Chomique (abdominal pain), Zehch payeni (jaundice) and garmi (fever). Wild flowers are thought to be more effective than those closer around the home.
