Plant of the Month

Arrowleaf Balsamroot

(Balsamorhiza sagittata)


stimulates production of white blood cells,
antibacterial, expectorant
   

We showcase this plant because it has not received the attention it truly deserves for its medicinal qualities!

   
   
Arrowleaf Balsamroot is one of the most outstanding flowering plants to be seen cascading across dry sunny slopes at elevations from 1,000 to 9,000 feet. This plant’s showy flowers bloom for the welcome springtime sunshine, though it can also be a cheerful sight in the forest lands through its range.

   
Herbalist Michael Moore describes the actions of Arrowleaf Balsamroot as a cross between Echinacea root and Osha root. That is to say that the root properties are noted to be an immunostimulant which increase the production of white blood cells; the root also contains antibacterial compounds (Matsuura and others, 1996); and it is commonly used as an expectorant which can clear the lungs by loosening phlegm.

   

The dense, large root is most widely used for tincturing as plant medicine. Unlike Echinacea, which has such tiny roots that to harvest them risks eliminating a sustainable source, Arrowleaf Balsamroot is hardy with much to offer –perhaps a better selection.
