Elecampane Root

Elecampane is a perennial herb found in Europe, Asia, and North America. Although elecampane is a nice ornamental in the garden, the Cork Institute of Technology recently discovered it could also be used to kill bacteria such as MSRA and is one of the better known of the anti-fungal herbs.

Common Name: Elecampane Root

Latin Name: Inula helenium

Other Names: Horse-heal, Horse-elder, Velvet Dock, Elfdock, Marchalan, Wild Sunflower

Wild sunflower has also been used in cough syrups, lozenges, and as a respiratory tonic. The roots can be used as a tea or candied so as to chew it without the bitter flavor.
