Black Cohosh Root
Black Cohosh Root (Cimicifuga spp.)
Black cohosh is the staple ‘statement piece’ in the wardrobe of the moist and shady woodland. She likes her feet wet as she stands in her power, she prefers to see the sun only on Sundays, and she wants to be surrounded by like-minded plant allies and other strong spirits. When she blooms one long, white of feathery micro-blooms, everybody else in the forest best pay attention. Pay attention, too, to the medicine of her roots: how elegant each gnarl, how juicy each salt-and-pepper colored slice. She doesn’t mind sharing: this is what it is to be rooted.
