A Little Black Cohosh History:
Way back, before America as we know it today, when Native Americans were the guardians of the land, the use of black cohosh to address everyday health concerns was common. The Native peoples discovered how powerful the plant was in assisting with not only debilitating gynecological issues, but they found it to be healing for sore throats, kidney issues, and even depression. After European settlers arrived, black cohosh continued to be utilized medicinally. Come 1830, this remarkable plant made its debut in the U.S Pharmacopeia, but was called something else: black snakeroot, which makes sense when you understand that the parts of the plant that provide the medicinal magic are the rhizome and root, both snakelike in appearance. Today, the root is harvested and ground into a fine powder, which is then steeped into an herbal tea.
