Not what you roast at the campfire, this shredded root is a wonderful demulcent meaning that it smooths the way, used by traditional healers to ease inflamed sore throats, dry coughs and upset digestive systems. It's antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and is not often taken alone but is blended with other herbs mostly used to address cold/flu/digestive issues.
