ECHINACEA (E. angustifolia & E. purpurea root)

Echinacea is a native of North America and was held in high esteem by the native people there. Magician-like shamans washed their hands with its juice before plunging them into scalding water as a ritual act.

Native Americans also used Echinacea for snakebites, insect bites, toothache, burns, colds, throat infections and inhaled the plant smoke for headaches.

During the 19th century it was employed as an anti-septic and blood cleanser. Today it is a proven antiviral agent and wound healer, and it is considered a nonspecific immune system stimulant.

The plant’s Latin name Echinacea means “prickly” and derives from the Greek word for hedgehog. Also known as Purple Cone Flower due to the unusual shape of its blossoms.
