It's all well and good to know herbal medicine and roots and poultices and such - but how the hell does such knowledge apply to a totally alien planet with totally unknown ecosystem, chemistry, biology... ?
Bev was not sure, hence why she asked Picard to taste and rub one of them, and had a similar effect to what she was hoping for. Plus when you're bleeding to death, you are going to try anything. Plus who's to say that such and such variety of planet life is only exclusive to one world? I can picture oak trees growing on a world 1,000 light years away.
Well sure - thanks to Stargate, we know every alien world looks like British Columbia.
