Wild Indigo Root
Wild Indigo serves mainly as an antiseptic. It also stimulates the immune system. The active components come from the roots and leaves. This is not the same plant which gives us the indigo die, but rather a perennial plant of the legume family that grows in the eastern United States and Canada.
It can be very effective for cold and flu when used in a tea. See our tea recipes for one using Wild Indigo.
