Echinacea P. Powder – Echinacea Purpurea
Also known as coneflower and snakeroot, Echinacea P. is a North American perennial herb that is valued as a colorful and stately garden ornamental as well as for its antioxidant compounds in the leaf and root. While the root is most often tinctured, the aerial parts of the plant are typically taken as tea.
Europeans were introduced to the plant in the mid-19th century by various Native American peoples, who used the herb for centuries. Although the American Medical Association declared the medicinal use of Echinacea P. as quackery in 1910, it became one of the most popular herbals in Europe and North American in the 1920s and remains one of the most popular today.
Echinacea is native to North America and has been used traditionally by Plains Indians.
Herb Stomp also has Echinacea A. Powder.
