The juice from Celandine has a strong skin-irritating effect and was used in folk medicine to remove warts and treat eczema and ringworm. Today the plant is mainly used in the production of yellow dye for wool.

A notable characteristic of Chelidonium majus is the orange sap that exudes from broken stems, roots or leaves. This species is known for heavy self-seeding but its ability to thrive in dry shade can make it very useful in the garden.
