Botanical Name: Sanguinaria canadensis Origin: USA
Bloodroot is a flowering perennial native to eastern North America. Sanguinaria canadensis exudes a red liquid from its freshly cut roots, earning it the name blood root. It was utilized in traditional indigenous healing practices for its wellness-supporting properties and was later adopted into folk herbalism. Bloodroot powder can be tinctured or used in topical applications.
