A native to the Western US, this special yam like tuber is found in abundance and more predictable in Oregon and California but can be found sporadically throughout the West from Montana down to Utah and over to the west coast. It has a very distinct flavor of a mix of sweet, bitter, pungent, and sour which can remind some people of root beer or even a chalky pepto-bismol type vibe. It is an excellent ally for both the male and female reproductive systems, the nervous system, and the muscular-skeletal system. Author Micheal Moore loves to use it when you are over worked from a long day of hiking or any physical activity to allow the body to "chill out". He also suggests it in times of emotional and intellectual stress. Energetically I've seen it work wonders assisting people through times of grief and anxiety.
A very special plant ally that we only carry in small amounts as it is quite hard to find and when you harvest you have to harvest the root before it goes to seed so you really need to pay attention to replant some tubers and be most respectful of the plant and the patch.
Our honey extracts are created using a proprietary process developed using raw honey. The honey used in the extraction process works to extract different constituents of the plants, providing a more complete extraction while also adding a pleasant, sweet flavor. According to the Ayurvedic tradition, honey acts as a carrier during the digestive process, carrying and assimilating the herbs deeper into tissues.
