Echinacea has become one of the most well-known herbs in American folk herbalism. A perennial member of the sunflower family, Echinacea angustifolia is one of nine species of echinacea native to North America. This specific variety has angular, narrow, hairy leaves and grows approximately one foot tall. Our all naturally cultivated echinacea can be steeped as echinacea tea, tinctured, and infused into topical oils.
Echinacea was used extensively by traditional herbalists and Native Americans alike in North America for generations, echinacea eventually gained popularity in Europe in the 1900's. One of its main uses is to support healthy immune function, although many of its historical uses were related to topical applications. It is now one of the most available dietary supplements in health food stores and continues to be a subject of many scientific studies investigating its immune support properties.
