Goldenseal Root Powder Organic (1 oz.)

$24.95

Goldenseal root has a long history of medicinal use among Native American tribes of the northeast, its native habitat. The Cherokee were known to use it for treatment of general debility, as well as mixing it with bear grease to make an insect repellant. The plant was first described to the outside world in the 1700's.

Goldenseal came into prominence among North American settlers in the 1800's, displacing its cousin goldthread as the popular herbal remedy of the time. By 1910 it was nearly harvested to extinction in the wild, and is still a rare plant in some regions due to overharvesting. As such, we highly recommend that goldenseal be purchased and used consciously and with concern to its environmental vulnerability.
