With a name like that, you know the medicine has history, it’s written into mythology. Helen of Troy and her tears shed over the countryside… Elecampane.
This alluringly fragrant, warming, spicy sweet bitter root, is perfect for respiratory infections. Perfect for
for the excess mucus, those deep bronchial infections. And she’s also an excellent digestive bitter, she is full of inulin, a prebiotic to balance your intestinal flora.
Flora, yes, and floral. Her floral perfume is like nothing else. A smell I’ve never experienced, and will never mistake for anything else ever again. Magic.
This medicinal root can be taken as a decoction, tincture, infused honey, or syrup.
