Oregon Grape Root is wonderful to use during cold and flu season. And it is easy to harvest if you are wild crafting on your own! It has very distinctive shiny leaves - but the roots are where are the gold is.
Oregon Grape’s history as a medicinal plant in North America, particularly in the Pacific Northwest, is clear and undisputed. Oregon grape was used by many First Nation Tribes and later by European colonists for a wide variety of healing purposes.
How Do I Use It?
Sometimes herbs have "contraindications" that everyone has to be wary of. Oregon Grape is one of those herbs that is used as a replacement for a few herbs with contraindications, such as Golden Seal or Licorice Root. We have used it with great results with sicknesses.
