No herb was more revered by American Indians than the versatile Golden Seal (hydrastis canadensis). Once flourishing in the moist¸ rich woodlands of the Northeast¸ they called it yellow root and used the brilliant golden juice extracted from its roots as an ornamental dye for their clothes and weapons¸ a paint for their faces¸ and for its health benefits. Early settlers adopted the use of Golden Seal and it quickly became a mainstay of American folk medicine. The name Golden Seal comes from the yellow scars left on the rhizome of the stem that bursts forth every spring; these scars look like the imprint of an old-fashioned letter seal. Golden Seal is very difficult and sensitive plant to grow and requires five years for roots to become mature. Since 1922¸ Alvita has been making the finest herb teas money can buy.
