No herb was more revered by Native Americans than the versatile Golden Seal (Hydrastis canadensis). Once flourishing in the moist, rich woodlands of the Northeast, they called it "yellow root" and used the brilliant gold juice extracted from its roots as an ornamental dye for their clothes and weapons, a paint for their faces, and for its health benefits. Early settlers adopted the use of Golden Seal and it quickly became a main-stay of American folk medicine. The name Golden Seal comes from the yellow scars left on the rhizome of the stem that bursts forth every spring- these scars look like the imprint of an old fashioned letter seal. Golden Seal is a very difficult and sensitive plant to grow and requires five years for roots to become mature.
Place 1-2 tsp. of the herbal tea into 6-8 oz of boiling water. Continue to boil for 3-5 minutes, then strain off the herbs.
Add honey to sweeten.
