Dried Skunk Cabbage root ( Symplocarpus foetidus or eastern skunk cabbage ) Skunk weed, swamp cabbage

Harvest Date: 10-12-2021 mid to Late Autumn

Location: West Michigan, USA

Hand collected straight from the cabbage patch growing in the wet mucky soil along the stream, located just outside the back garden. The root and underground stem (rhizome) are used to make medicine. Skunk cabbage contains chemicals that relieve pain and cause relaxation.

Roots are sold by the whole rhizomes system. 

Root systems range in size.

You will receive the whole root as it was harvested.


After harvesting, the roots are washed in cold water and foreign material ( rocks, mud, and other roots) is removed by hand as best as possible. The roots are never soaked in water in any attempt to clean them as this extracts vital elements. The roots are then placed to dry in a well-ventilated environment upon racks.
