Considered a potential natural antibiotic to support external wounds, colds and flu.
Golden Seal is still one of the most popular medicinal herbs used today. Externally, the powdered root is used directly in cuts and small wounds as an antiseptic aid to healing and to arrest bleeding. The powder can also be snuffed for nasal inflamation and can be applied directly as a medication for sore throat, either by dropping a bit of the powder on the back of the throat or by blowing it through a straw. The strong decoction is used as a wash for festering sores, skin erruptions and eye infections. It can be used in tooth powder and will help to prevent and relieve gum infections.
