Over many centuries, reverence for this herb was translated into the Christian ritual of hanging European Mistletoe over doorways at Christmas. With each kiss, a berry was removed, and when they were gone, the Mistletoe was said to have lost its powers. Today, Mistletoe is used medicinally for headaches, dizziness, energy loss, irritability, vertigo and other symptoms connected with raised blood pressure.
Mistletoe is derived from the Celtic word, mil'ioc, meaning "all-heal."
