Botanical Name: Caulophyllum thalictroides Origin: USA
Native to eastern North America, blue cohosh is a rhizomatous perennial that grows in shady woodland habitats. Blue cohosh is a member of the Berberidaceae family and produces bright blue, poisonous berries. However, the root has been used in healthful applications by indigenous tribes for centuries. Our blue cohosh root powder is ground from Caulophyllum thalictroides and can be utilized in topical applications, extracts, and infusions.
Blue cohosh is a woodland plant in the same family as barberry, goldenseal, and Oregon grape root, native to the eastern United States and Canada. The word cohosh is from Algonquian and means rough, which refers to the root. The stem is bluish, which is where the rest of the name comes from. Blue cohosh is also referred to as papoose root.
