Product Description

Queen of Meadow Herb (c/s, Wildharvest)

 

Also Known As – Eupatorium purpureum, Gravel Root, Joe-Pye Weed, Jopi Weed, Kidney Root, Purple Boneset, and Trumpet Weed.

Origin -USA

Overview - Gravel root is a native of the North American continent, growing from southern Canada through Florida, mostly in wet, wooded areas. Native American culture has a long history using gravel root. It was said that if you tucked a leaf into your check, it would ensure that any words spoken to the opposite sex would be well received.

  • It is very often referred to as Joe Pye weed, or Sweet Joe Pye weed. As legend has it, Joe Pye was a Native American who used gravel root to help cure an outbreak of typhoid. Why the “sweet” part is sometimes attached seems to be a mystery to this day. It has often been considered a good luck charm among many American folks, many gamblers carry parts of the plant on them for good luck. It is also one of the integral ingredients in a mojo bag.

Medicinal Uses - Diuretic, nervine. Formerly the use of this purple flowered Boneset was very similar to that of the ordinary Boneset. It is especially valuable as a diuretic and stimulant as well as an astringent tonic, and is considered a valuable remedy in dropsy, strangury, gravel, hematuria, gout and rheumatism, exerting a special influence upon chronic renal and cystic troubles.

  • Despite serious safety concerns, gravel root is used for urinary tract problems such as urinary or kidney stones; infections of the bladder, urethra, and prostate; and painful urination.
  • People also use gravel root for arthritis-like pain (rheumatism) and gout, as well as for fever from malaria, dengue virus, or typhus. Gravel root is also used to reduce stomach acid, increase urine flow, cause vomiting, and cause sweating; and as a stimulant and tonic.
