Red root has been employed for its healthful properties within Native American traditions for centuries. The large shrub is native to eastern North America and earns its name from the shade of its root bark and the red color it imparts on the menstruum it’s used in. Our red root powder is milled from organic Ceanothus americanus. The powder can be used in extract making, infusions, topical applications, and as dye.
Red root is a shrub also known as wild snowball for its clusters of white flowers borne in early summer. Its root is bitter and its root tea has a "bite." Red root was used as a substitute for tea during the American Revolutionary War. Red root is also referred to as Jersey tea or New Jersey tea. It is a member of the Rhamnaceae family.
