The translation of the common name is “Sacred Bark”, and Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest passed along information on its use and preparation to the Spanish and other settlers. It has been an official preparation in the United States Pharmacopeia first listed in 1890. Eclectic Physicians in the United States would have been familiar with this herb as the Eli Lilly and Company Pharmaceutical Company introduced a combination formula called “Elixir Purgans” containing cascara and other herbs in 1877.
