Elecampane root origin
Elecampane root is a beautiful plant with a flower and deep symbolism. The Latin name of the plant is Inula helenium and refers directly to Helen of Troy. The princess was kidnapped from her hometown and shed many tears, and legend has it that yellow flowers resembling sunflowers grew in their place.
The famous Greek botanist doctor Discorides extended the Åland root's fame and attributed to it a number of valuable health properties. The root contains the starch substance inulin. The herb is also used in the perfume industry.

There are documented reports of consumption of excessive doses of Inula helenium root extract causing vomiting, spasms, diarrhea and, in rare cases, even paralysis. In addition, it is not recommended to use Elecampane root during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
