Blackberry Root: Rubus armeniacus (Focke)
Why Blackberry Root? Blackberry bushes are one of the heartiest plants—growing wild in rambling brambles in temperate climates. Blackberry has a long history of use within Native American cultures, such as the Cherokee, who chewed the root and swallowed the saliva.
