The herb is known to calm the nerves and induce relaxation, which also makes it beneficial for sleeplessness. It was also used topically for various skin issues.
Herbalists regard Mistletoe as a natural hypotensive drug, which means it can lower blood pressures. This, in turn, also makes the herb beneficial for heart health. Mistletoe is also known to boost the immune system, relieve various respiratory and circulatory issues, and a great herbal cure for stress and its associated issues.
There are several mythologies, legends, and folklores associated with Mistletoe plant in various parts of the world. The most popular of all, which is believed to have created the tradition of kissing under the Mistletoe tree comes from Scandinavia.
According to the legend, Baldr, the god of peace, was killed by an arrow made from the stem of Mistletoe tree. However, when Baldr’s life was restored upon the request of other gods and goddesses, his mother Frigga, who was the goddess of love and beauty, blessed the tree with the promise that whoever would pass from under the Mistletoe tree would get a kiss from her to depict that the tree had become an emblem of love.
