Blue Cohosh

Known by Native American women from the Algonquin tribe, Blue Cohosh is also known as Squaw root. 

As the name suggests, Blue Cohosh works on women's ailments such as cramps or delayed menstrual cycles. Additionally, the herb aids with arthritis, gout and is very helpful in birthing.

I don't think I've ever heard of Blue Cohosh, and I definitely didn't know all the uses it has!

Hi,
This is interesting. I've seen this plant but thought of it as a weed.
Thanks. I'm learning.
