Yellowroot

Xanthorhiza Simplicissima

The clean, bitter taste of yellowroot accounts for its former popularity as a tonic. Various strengths of tea brewed from the roots have served in folk medicine as a wash for an ulcerated mouth, as a sore throat remedy, and as a tea for stomach upset, but current pharmacological opinion is that the plant has little medicinal value.

Excessive doses of yellowroot may be harmful.
