Mistletoe is a plant that can often be found hanging around entryways and doorways during the holidays.
According to Scandinavian customs, any man or woman caught under the sprig of mistletoe must kiss. The leaves and branches of this bushy plant have been used by herbalists in Europe for centuries to help treat circulatory and respiratory problems. In extract form, it’s even mentioned as a possible natural solution to attack abnormal cell growth related to certain cancers.
Mistletoe is a parasite and can be found in nature growing on trees and shrubs. The sticky juice of the berries has been used by some cultures to trap birds.
