We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

Hydrastis Canadensis



Goldenseal is a perennial herb whose dried roots and rhizome are used in herbal remedies. It is a relative of the buttercup, which is native to the eastern US and Canada and is also known as yellow paint root, turmeric root, yellow eye, eye balm, golden daisy, herb Margaret, orange root, yellow puccoon and jaundice root.


Goldenseal is antiseptic, astringent, diuretic and anti-inflammatory and is used for skin, throat and eye infections. Tincture and infusion of goldenseal can be used as a mouthwash or gargle for mouth ulcers and sore throats. Added to creams and ointments it can be used for cuts, wounds and fungal infections.
