It is widespread throughout Britain and Ireland where it can be found growing at sunny locations beside ponds, rivers and streams and also in marshes and damp meadows. Marsh woundwort has a long history of use in traditional medicine and was once used for dressing cuts and other wounds. It is said to cure aching joints when made into an ointment and to have antispasmodic and sedative properties when taken internally.
