Organic Yellowdock Root, Powder (Rumex crispus)
Botanical Name: Rumex crispus
Common Names: Curled Dock, Curly Dock, Sour Dock, Narrow Dock, Garden Patience
Yellow dock’s long, thin leaves are curled at the edges, which earns it the nickname curly dock. Known for its thick, yellow, fleshy roots, Rumex crispus has been employed in traditional herbal practices for its wellness-supporting qualities. Yellow dock root powder can be used topically, encapsulated, tinctured, and infused in herbal vinegars.
Curled dock bears multiple clusters of three-winged flowers. Its seeds are green in the summer but they become deep red as they mature. The root of yellow dock is bright yellow below the bark. The root is harvested in late summer after the seeds have begun to turn red.
