Elecampane is a member of the same plant family as the sunflowers and ragweed, native to southern and eastern Europe but naturalized around the world. It is named after Helen of Troy, who carried the flowers with her when Paris abducted her from Sparta.
Elecampane is also said to enhance psychic abilities and works involving scrying, as well as being one part of a nine herb bath blend that is said to impart protection from witches.
Elecampane is also an ingredient in my Love Powder.
Typical preparations: Brewed in a tea or encapsulated.
Common Name: elecampane
Botanical Name: Inula helenium L.
Specific: Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family (such as feverfew, chamomile, or Echinacea) should exercise caution as a potential allergen. Large doses may cause vomiting, diarrhea, and cramping.
