Osha root is a very powerful plant and one of the most important herbs to Native American tribes who treated it with high regard, utilizing every part of it. It also goes by the name bear medicine, mountain ginseng, empress of the dark forest and Indian root. It is a member of the parsley family and has a scent like peppery celery. The root has been used in smoking blends, as well as incense and smudging for purification and protection. Warriors believed that carrying one or wearing it as a talisman while hunting or in battle would protect them.
It has many modern medicinal uses including upper respiratory, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. It is an excellent cleansing herb and can increase the power of other smudging herbs when used in combination.
