A popular name of mistletoe is Mistletoe, known from the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe.

Under the Mistletoe hearts May be seen

If we dissect the word Mistletoe, it appears the old Germanic word 'mist' 'manure' to mean and the Anglo-Saxon word 'tan' stands for 'twig'. This name has to do with the way in which the plant is spreading. Birds eat the seeds and spread them through their feces. In many nations, including the Germanic peoples, the Mistletoe plays an important role in sacred rituals. This is because it is a striking appearance: it is an evergreen shrub in a bare winter tree. Mistletoe are half parasites. They extract water and minerals to their host, the tree - in particular deciduous trees - where they grow up.
Mistletoe can help treat high blood pressure. You can buy it as a tea at a health food store.
