Blood Root, Wildcrafted 1oz
*Please use consciously. This plant is on the United Plant Savers At-Risk List*
Blood root can be used topically to heal skin conditions such as lesions, tumors, and cysts. It has also been used topically as a successful treatment for melanoma. This herb is beneficial in the treatment of numerous lung conditions. It has expectorant properties and thus thins and expels mucus. It also has antispasmodic effects on the lower respiratory system, which can be useful to treat dry, hacking coughs, including whooping cough, croup, bronchitis, and some kinds of asthma. Blood root has been shown to have strong antibacterial properties. This may be why it is used in many dental care products as an anti-plaque agent. Unfortunately, this plant is threatened because of its overuse in dental products and as a result of deforestation. Please use this herb sparingly.
