No 18 Eleuthero Root


Eleuthero Root is a herbaceous perennial flowering plant, native in mountain thickets throughout Japan, China, Korea, and Russia. Also called Siberian ginseng, it is a member of the Araliaceae family and is known as an adaptogen and has been part of the herbal repertoire in Chinese medicine for thousands of years.

The plant is used to support general health and invigorate Qi, to strengthen and nourish the spleen and kidney and to balance vital energy. 

Eleuthero Root imparts a sweet, slightly bitter, and slightly warm flavor.
  • Bodily Effect: Eleuthero Root promotes healthy energy and helps maintain stamina levels. It also acts as a stimulant, increasing nervous system function.
  • Emotional Effect: Eleuthero Root helps to maintain harmony when feeling overwhelmed and stressed. 
  • Spiritual Effect: Eleuthero Root is a mothering herb—nourishing and loving us while teaching us to respect the world around us, to slow down, and to really get at one with nature. 
Originally came to Britain with the invading Romans. Soldiers used to flog their arms and legs with the plant to keep circulation going and to keep them warm, and to ward off illness and infection rife in cold, damp weather. During WWII dark green nettle plant dye was used as camouflage, and chlorophyll was extracted for use in medicines

"Eleuthero Root's spiritual qualities include its ability to attract love and promote general good health and vitality."
