This is the entry for khella (or possibly Queen Anne's Lace) from Askham's Herbal.


This herbe Ameos hath leaves like unto the Eldren, but they be lesse & the seede is like the perslye sede, the vertu of this herbe is thus, if it be tempereth with hony, it sleeth wormes that be in a mans bodye, and it unbyndeth the greate stoppinge of wyndes, & it breketh the stoone, & it chafeth the lyver & the raynes, and it healeth woundes & the byting of venemous beastes, this herbe is hoote and drye in the seconde degre.
