Goldenrod is a perennial member of the daisy and aster family. The plant is native to Europe and Asia, but is now distributed throughout North and South America. The botanical name Solidago comes from the Latin term "solidare," which means "to make whole."
In the Americas, after the Boston Tea Party, the colonists, having just gotten rid of their favorite beverage, made a tea of goldenrod and called it "Liberty Tea". It was also used as a dye amongs the colonists. Other legends tell that the stem could be used by some as a divining rod, and that when it grows near a house, the occupants will be granted good fortune.
Precautions - Do not use during acute attacks of kidney stones or other kidney disorders. Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family should exercise caution.
