Description Ingredients & Technical Information Formulation and Usage Information
 

Blood Root (Sanguinaria canadensis) is a perennial, herbaceous flowering plant native to eastern North America from Nova Scotia, Canada southward to Florida, United States, and west to Great Lakes and down the Mississippi embayment. It is the only species in the genus Sanguinaria, included in the family Papaveraceae, and most closely related to Eomecon of eastern Asia.

Blood Root is also known as bloodwort, red puccoon root, and sometimes pauson. Blood Root has also been known as tetterwort in America, although that name is used in Britain to refer to Greater Celandine (Chelidonium majus). This herb gets its name from its bright blood-red colored root. Blood Root's alkaloid, sanguinarine, is used today in toothpaste and mouthwash. It has anesthetic and antiseptic properties.

When combined with oak bark, the roots give a red dye.

SAFETY

Blood Root produces benzylisoquinoline alkaloids, primarily the toxin sanguinarine. The alkaloids are transported to and stored in the rhizome.

This plant is extremely poisonous. Improper use should be avoided.

Warning: Not to be used during pregnancy. May cause nausea and vomiting.
