You obviously don't get much whatever it is at a time (only an inch above the chopped up polypody, whatever that is). It's not for internal use: what about external, eg as a poultice on a wound? The wine would be a sort of antiseptic I suppose.

I know what polypody are, and even a bit about it herbaly-speaking. It had a LOT of uses, but I have no idea of this one!

Ink.

Etymologically correct - polypody refers to the shape/appearance of the plant being used. But for what?

Well, others mentioned hair, so I stood on the shoulders of giants, as it were. Poohbear's clues and pointers helped as well, of course.

Next question shortly.

Right. The cities I list below all have something in common. What is it?

Johannesburg
Dubai
Ho Chi Minh City

I will add more cities if people don't get it from these.
