False Unicorn Root (Chamaelirium luteum)Latin Name: Chamaelirium luteum
Common Names: False Unicorn Root
The plant from which the medicinal herb known as False Unicorn Root is obtained is known to botanists as Chamaelirium luteum. As an herbaceous plant, it can be categorized with true natural herbs; however, the useful part is of course the roots, not bulk Chamaelirium luteum leaves.
The plant from which c/s False Unicorn Root is obtained is a perennial native to the U.S.; it grows primarily in the woodlands east of the Mississippi River, flowering in the late spring. It is one of the more commonly used native American herbs; traditionally, Iroquois and Algonquin-speaking peoples used it as a diuretic and to aid reproductive system of both women and men.
Dried False Unicorn Root is either cut up or ground into a powder and made into a decoction by boiling it for about a quarter of an hour. The tea made from the dried herbs was then drunk.
Herbs - even organic herbs - should be treated with respect and taken with caution. Although bulk herbs sold at Starwest are guaranteed to be of the highest purity possible, the fact is that, wholesale chamaelirium luteum can be harmful if not used properly. In large amounts, it is known to cause nausea and vomiting; an overdose of False Unicorn Root can also adversely affect the heart. Whether taking False Unicorn Root or any other botanical extract, it is wise to consult a trained and licensed herbalist or other healthcare professional first.
