Sassafras root

Likely passed down from Native American traditions, tribes and early mountain healers used the leaves of sassafras to treat wounds by rubbing the leaves directly into a wound and used different parts of the plant for many medicinal purposes such as treating acne, and urinary disorders.

Today Sassafras tea is commonly brewed to cure kidney stones, UTI, and toothaches.

Sassafras oil was once used in commercially produced root beer, but the oil has since been banned by the FDA due to health concerns.
