History: Cranesbill Root comes from a species of garden-variety Geranium native to North America. Native Americans used as a food source and as a medicinal herb for diarrhea, dysentery, hemorrhaging, sores, and open wounds. Early Europeans, whose lives were plagued with chronic diarrhea and dysentery, quickly adopted the use of Cranesbill, saving many lives. Today, Cranesbill is used much the same way as the Native Americans use for the herb.
