Goldenrod (Solidago Canadensis) is in the daisy family of botanical plants. The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the flowering tops. Most people find this a hay-fever producing plant more a pest than a help but read on to find that it has some great healing properties. The same goldenrod that causes autumn allergies for millions has been used for centuries as an herbal medication by millions more. The botanical name Solidago comes from the Latin term solidare, to make whole. The plant grows 2 to 3 feet high, with alternating leaves and panicles of golden flowers on top.

A little history-during the Boston Tea Party, colonist drank goldenrod tea instead of English tea which gave it the nick-name “Liberty Tea. "

How Can We Use Goldenrod Essential Oil Today?

Goldenrod oil is used for hypertension, liver congestion, hepatitis and fatty liver, circulatory conditions, and urinary tract and bladder conditions. Goldenrod is a little-known essential oil made from a plant that grows as a prolific weed in areas of Canada. The oil has a very distinctive fragrance, rather strong but not unpleasant, and its main use is in its anti-allergy properties, for conditions like hay fever, allergic reactions, coughs, and respiratory system infections. It is also reputed to be a lymphatic system conditioner, a regulator of the autonomic nervous system, and a healer of wounds, insect bites and inflammation.

How Can This Oil Be Applied?

Goldenrod can be diluted 50-50 and applied on location, on the chakras/vita flex points, directly inhaled, diffused and taken internally. As for safety, goldenrod is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing.
