Elecampane Root (Cut & Sifted, Organic)

Inula helenium, or elecampane, received its species name in remembrance of Helen of Troy, who reputedly carried a bouquet of the plant's sunny, yellow flowers as she was carried off by the Trojan prince, Paris. The root has less romantic associations, but contains compounds with antibacterial properties and is used to make teas, tinctures and extracts.
