Herbal medicine. Couch grass herbal medicine pills with a pestle and mortar. The pestle and mortar is used to grind and crush the herbs. There is a small pile of the herb couch grass, or wheatgrass (Agropyron repens) at lower right. Several pills made from compressed couch grass can be seen. Couch grass has several uses as a medicinal herb. It can be applied to the skin as an emollient (softener), or taken as a diuretic (to increase urine flow). It also has anti-inflammatory properties. The plant can be fermented to make a type of beer, and it can also be eaten raw in salads when it is young and still soft.
