Senega Snakeroot

Senega Snakeroot

Polygala senega

The Blackfoot reportedly used snakeroot to treat respiratory disease. The Cherokee reportedly used it for rheumatism, as a diuretic, and as an expectorant. It is said to have been used as a snake bite remedy (hence the name "snakeroot") where the root was chewed and swallowed and the wound was treated with a poultice made from the root. Among the Cree and Woodlands peoples, snakeroot was reportedly used for sore throats and toothache. It is said to have general use for treating colds. Source Native American Ethnobotony  [2004:421]

Modern references indicate usage as an excellent expectorant for treatment of bronchitic asthma and as use as a mouthwash and gargle for treatment of pharyngitis and laryngitis. Source: The Complete Illustrated Holistic Herbal, David Hoffman [1996:125]

Botanical Safety Handbook, Michael McGuffin [1997:89]  rated Class 2b (Not for use during pregnancy); 2d (Not for use with gastritis or gastric ulcers). Not for long term use.

Star Anise

Star Anise

Illicium Verum

This type of anise typically comes from a small tree native to southwestern China. Its taste and aroma are very similar to the more common anise (Pimpinella anisum) that has been used since Roman times. Both anises taste a lot like licorice, which has led to them being used to flavor candies and foods. In Asia, people sometimes eat star anise after meals to freshen breath and aid digestion.
