Oxalis means literally sour and is named as such due to its oxalic acid content . Wood sorrel is rich in Vitamin C . Historically , it was used to treat scurvy , fevers , urinary infections , mouth sores , nausea and sore throats . The plant , which is widely considered to be the plant that St . Patrick used to demonstrate the Trinity to the ancient Irish , is distinguished by its clover like leaves , arranged alternately along the stem , divided into 3 heart shaped leaflets .
