Solomon's seal (botanical name Polygonatum multiflorum) is a perennial herb that is found growing in damp sandy, loamy or stony woods and thickets. The plant has a groveling rootstock or underground stem, which is chunky and has a white color. The underground stem is entwined having several knots along with spherical blemishes at intervals. These scars have been left behind by the leaf stems of the preceding years. The plant establishes stems that grow up to a height of 18 inches to two feet and occasionally even higher. These stems grow straight for a considerable length and subsequently lean over elegantly. These stems are round, have a light green color and are leafless around half-way up. From there to the top, they produce big and generally oval-shaped leaves that emerge alternately on the stem, especially holding onto it by the bases. All the leaves of the herb possess a special character and that is of turning one away, being somewhat curved upward and also to one side. The leaves also have distinct longitudinal ribs on their surfaces.

Similar to arnica, it is believed that even the Solomon's seal also prevents excessive bruising as well as promotes repair of damaged tissues. This herb is mostly used in the form of a poultice. As the rhizome of the plant possesses astringent as well as demulcent (soothing) actions, these facilitate in speeding up the healing process. In addition, herbal medicine practitioners also recommend Solomon's seal for treating tuberculosis, and menstrual problems as well as a general tonic for the body. Solomon's seal is considered to be a yin tonic in Chinese herbal medicine and it is believed to be especially applicable to problems that affect the respiratory system. It is also used to treat painful throats, chest pain, dry and prickly coughs as well as bronchial congestion.
An infusion prepared with the herb helps to heal wounds and facilitates in restoring health. It is also beneficial for problems related to the gastro-intestines, such as stomach inflammations, chronic dysentery and others. The dry roots of Solomon's seal are powdered to prepare an effective poultice for treating inflammations, piles, bruises as well as a number of other similar problems. As aforementioned, the roots or rhizomes of the herb are harvested in autumn, dried and stored for use when necessary. The dried powder of the roots and flowers of the Solomon's seal have also been used as a snuff to encourage sneezing and, thereby, clear the bronchial passages. Unless there is any kind of professional supervision, the plant or any medications prepared with it should never be used internally. It may be noted that distilled water prepared from the whole Solomon's seal plant has been used as a tonic for the skin and it also forms an active ingredient in a number of expensive cosmetic products.
A potent decoction prepared with the whole plant has been found to be effective in curing erysipelas (a severe streptococcal infectious disease of the skin) when taken at intervals of two to three hours. In addition, this decoction can also be applied topically to the affected parts. There was a time when the bruised Solomon's seal roots mixed with cream were extensively used as a popular remedy for black eyes. The smashed leaves were also used to prepare a stiff ointment along with lard to cure the same problem.
