Bloodroot is a popular natural red dye used by Native American artists as a body paint and as a dye. A bachelor of the Ponca tribe would rub a piece of the root as a love charm on the palm of his hand, then scheme to shake hands with the woman he desired to marry. After shaking hands, the girl would be found willing to marry him in 5-6 days.
Historically it was often used in tinctures and extracts to treats a variety of ailments.
Today, Blood Root is found primarily in external skin care preparations.
Traditional herbalists include the powerful Blood root in anti-plaque mouthwash and in digestive tonic combinations.
Blood root is reputed to act as a natural insect repellent. It is also used to produce a dye for coloring wool and fabric.
Bloodroot has one large basal leaf, up to 12 cm across, with 5-9 lobes. The leaves and flowers sprout from a reddish rhizome with bright orange sap that grows at or slightly below the soil surface.
