No herb was more revered by American Indians
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
golden 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
mainstay of American folk medicine. The name Golden Seal comes from the yellow scars left
on the rhizome of the stem that bursts from every spring; these cars look like the omprint
of an old-fashioned letter seal. Golden Seal is a very difficult and sensitive plant to
gro and requires five years for roots to become mature.
