Overview - Way back in Roman times, Pliny told of the fact that the use of elecampane would relieve indigestion. Elecampane was one of the most important herbs to the Greeks and Romans. It was regarded as almost a cure-all for dropsy, digestive upsets, menstrual disorders and sciatica. The Anglo-Saxons used the herb as a tonic, for skin diseases, and leprosy. By the 19th century, it was used to treat skin disease, neuralgia, liver problems, and coughs. Today it is used almost exclusively for respiratory problems. In China, Inula japonica, also called elecampane, is used instead of I. helenium.

Medicinal Uses - Elecampane is used for many respiratory complaints like bronchitis and has shown promise for helping some some cardiovascular diseases by relieving cardiac stress. It may also prove useful in lowering blood pressure. It has been traditionally used as a digestive aid. It aids the appetite and has also been used to treat worms. The powdered root can be added to cough syrups, expectorants and pain relievers. It is said to relieve water retention and help prevent tooth decay.

Other Uses – The root has also been shown to be the source of a blue dye when mixed with whortleberries and ash as a mordant.

Parts Used - Roots are harvested in the autumn of the plant's second year for the most potency.

Precautions - If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, or are borderline, you should stay away from elecampane. Large amounts of this herb can affect blood sugar levels. Likewise, if you are pregnant, do not use, as it has been historically used to stimulate contractions. Some people also experience a skin allergy to this herbal remedy. If you have ragweed allergies, be cautious of using.

Preparation and Dosage - Elecampane is available in tinctures, capsules and teas.
