History: Prickly Ash is a North American plant that has been used in various ways by Native Americans. The bark was chewed to alleviate toothache, while a balm of ground root and bear fat was used to heal external sores. Native Americans also used Prickly Ash as a warmer for cold hands and feet. A trick they shared with early European settlers. The Native Americans first used it to make the cold North American winters more bearable. Today it continues to be used by people who suffer from cold hands and feet, particularly those who have Raynaud’s Disease.
