Coral root is an effective remedy for fevers, cramps, and skin diseases. Because of its relative scarcity, it is often combined with other herbs. The tea can be used internally or externally. For insomnia, take the tea before going to bed.

Description:

Coral root is a native American, perennial plant that grows around the roots of trees in dry woodlands in the USA. The dark brown, branched, toothed, coral-like underground rootstocks send up simple scapes with sheaths instead of leaves and with terminal racemes of 3 to 20 flowers. The hood-like flowers are reddish or purplish on the outside, paler and flecked with purple lines on the inside. One petal forms a white lip with purple spots and a purple rim. Flowers appear from August to October.

Dosage:

Infusion: Steep 1 tsp. rootstock in 1 cup water. Take hot or cold, 1 to 2 cups a day.

Tincture: Take 10 to 20 drops at a time.

Safety:

No information available. Some herbs are known to react with your medication. Please consult your physician before starting on any herb.
