History: Goldenrod Herb is a wildflower native to North America. Native American medicine men used the leaves for intestinal disorders and urinary infections and the flowers for colic. The Chippewa, who would boil the plant to produce syrup for treating colds, knew it as gizisomukiki, or sun medicine. Goldenrod was also used as a poultice cure toothaches and to soothe burns and boils. The Cherokee used Goldenrod to heal bruises, insect stings, and saddle sores from riding horses. Later, American revolutionists used the dried leaves of the Goldenrod to make a Liberty tea.
