The old name of "Wound-wort," or "Bruise-wort," shows one of the main spheres of the action of Bellis, and allies it in action with its fellow Compositae, Arnica Arnica and Calendula Officinalis Calendula. The daisy is a flower which is repeatedly trodden upon and always comes up smiling afterwards.

and being the "day's eye" may be the sign of its too early waking propensities. Dr. Burnett is the chief authority for its homoeopathic uses. "It acts very much like Arnica Arnica, even to the production of erysipelas." He has cured with its aid several cases of tumours originating in a blow. "Stasis" and "fag" are the principal notes of its action. Exudations and swellings of many kinds. Fagged womb. Varicose veins. The giddinesses of elderly people (cerebral stasis).

It has been observed to cause dilatation of the pupil when used locally.
