This plant is well known amongst ayurvedic practitioners as an adaptogen herb. It helps in building and maintaining a healthy immune system, as well as regulating the nervous system. The whole plant can be used medicinally, though the root is most commonly used in tinctures and teas, or powdered and stirred into milk for a nourishing and comforting drink. The aromatic roots are typically dug in the fall, or can be left in the ground to overwinter for future digging. Self-sowing annual, can be perennialized.

How To Grow
Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?
✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.
✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.
✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
