Known commonly as papoose root and squa root, Blue Cohosh Root (Caulophyllum thalictroides) is another herb traditionally passed on from Native American tribes to European settlers. Among the various tribes it tended to have different known purposes. For example, among the Iroquise it was utilized for Arthritis, among the Mohegan it was for urinary tract infections, and among the Cherokee it was utilized as tranquilizer. In general terms it was also sometimes utilized for lung problems and fever.
Modern herbalism and tradition come together in depicting Blue Cohosh as an herbal supplement that can be used to induce labor and treat menstrual cramps. As always with any such herbal treatment you should consult your doctor before use. Due to the obvious hazards of ingestion, it should not be consumed if you are pregnant or nursing.
This is a 1 oz packet of Blue Cohosh Root.
