Product Details

Black cohosh is named after its twisting, black root that somewhat resembles a snake. Native to central and eastern North America, the herbaceous perennial likes to grow in woodland habitats. Our black cohosh powder is milled from organic Actaea racemosa roots. Black cohosh root powder can be encapsulated, tinctured, or made into tablets.

Black Cohosh is a flowering perennial, native to many parts of Canada and the United States. It thrives in old-growth coastal forests and regions of considerable biodiversity. The vast majority of the world's black cohosh is produced and cultivated in the United States and Canada. The plant grows between three and six feet, with a stem that is clustered with tiny white flowers. The root is best collected between late July and September.

It was a favorite herbal remedy for Native Americans. The name cohosh is from the Algonquian tribe, and means rough, referring to the feel of the rhizome. It was given the name "bugbane" because the flowers have such a strong odor and have been used to effectively repel insects. Other common names include black snakeroot and rheumatism weed.
