Ranunculus Bulbosus, commonly known as St Anthony’s turnip or bulbous buttercup, is a perennial member of the Buttercup Family. It has attractive yellow flowers, and deeply divided, three-lobed long-petioled basal leaves. Bulbous buttercup is known to form tufts.
- Despite serious safety concerns, people take bulbous buttercup for skin diseases, arthritis, gout, nerve pain, flu (influenza), swine flu, and meningitis.
- More than a century ago, bulbous buttercup was recommended by herbalists for resolving dermatologic, rheumatologic, gastrointestinal, and dental complaints. When rubbed on the skin, bulbous buttercup causes blistering, swelling, and topical ulcers, which were said to alleviate pain topically as well as subcutaneously. All parts of the acrid plants were used to induce vomiting and diarrhea upon ingestion. As a painkiller, the plant was stuffed into dental cavities and its infusions were rubbed on the gums of teething infants
