More info

During the Roman empire, lettuce was regularly used as a medicine. Two emperors credit it with having cured them of their maladies. One was the emperor Tacitus, and the other was Augustus, the first emperor of Rome. The treatment involved infusions (teas) made from lettuce, eating lettuce, and cold baths.

It was said that Tacitus, for a good night sleep, would “indulge himself without stint” in lettuce. The emperor Augustus went so far as to say that an infusion of lettuce saved his life from a grave illness.

There are several mentions of lettuce in Roman literature, most notably by the Roman historian Pliny the Elder, and in a collection of Roman histories entitled Historia Augusta.

This wild lettuce tea is sold as an herbal tea. No medical claims have been made here other than what is in the public domain.
