This month on the Herbal Collections blog, local master herbalist Mary Colvin explains the virtues of ginger.
She writes, "Here in America, we have what is called Wild Ginger (Asarum canadense). This is a creeping perennial with heart shaped leaves that is found in rich wooded areas. Wild Ginger root was highly prized by the American Indian tribes for many afflictions. It was used for indigestion, heart troubles, female complaints, coughs, colds, throat ailments, and nervous conditions."
