Gravel Root ~ Queen of the Meadow
Eupatorium purpureum L.
Organic

Gravel Root has been used historically as a diuretic and an anti-inflamitory. The Iroquois Indians called it "Little Medicine Water". The Native Americans use is as a wound wash to help prevent infection.

Gravel root is a native of the North American continent, growing from southern Canada through Florida, mostly in wet, wooded areas. Native American culture has a long history using gravel root. It was said that if you tucked a leaf into your check, it would ensure that any words spoken to the opposite sex would be well received.

It is very often referred to as Joe Pye weed, or Sweet Joe Pye weed. As legend has it, Joe Pye was a Native American who used gravel root to help cure an outbreak of typhoid. Why the "sweet" part is sometimes attached seems to be a mystery to this day. It has often been considered a good luck charm among many American folks, many gamblers carry parts of the plant on them for good luck. It is also one of the integral ingredients in a mojo bag.
