1 Lb Elecampane Root cut


Elecampane is also quite well known by its Latin name, Inula Helenium, as well as its common names: Horse-Heal and Marchalm. The plant, widely grown for its medicinal purposes and even reportedly used as a condiment by the ancients, is discussed at length by ancient philosophers, doctors and even Poets. From these sources did it get its Latin name "Helenium," as it was said to have grown where Helen of Troy`s tears had fallen. The Celts too held it as a sacred plant, calling it Elfwort (elf-herb), perhaps due to its qualities as an antiseptic which left it treasured as a magical healing herb. previously prescribed for all manner of ailments, Elecampane is now primarily used only within the veterinary practice. Modern herbalists do however highly value Elecampane for its antiseptic qualities still, and will sometimes use it as an expectorant. It is also supposed to be quite valuable in treating those who are suffering from water retention. Elecampane should not be used by those who are pregnant. This is a 1 lb packet of Elecampane Root, cut.
