More often than not, Goldenrod has been falsely accused of contributing to seasonal allergies. This is so amazing, since it actually ameliorates many allergies. It does bloom at the same time as ragweed, which does contributes to many people’s allergies. Therefore, it is easy to be confused. Goldenrod’s pollen is sticky which means that it is not pollinated by wind and needs bees and other critters to get the job done. But ragweed does get wind pollinated, which contributes to allergies.

Goldenrod is best known as a soothing tonic for the whole genito-urinary tract. It is used to treat kidney and bladder infections. However, due to its astringent and diuretic properties it dries up my nasal passages while the anti-inflammatory actions help to soothe the irritations caused by the allergens.

Goldenrod is a perennial plant, native to Europe and Asia, but naturalized in North America. It is a hardy plant, growing in pastures and along mountainsides. The botanical name Solidago comes from the Latin term "solidare," which means "to make whole." A member of the Asteraceae family, the plant grows 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 cm) high, with alternating leaves and panicles of golden flowers on top. In the Americas, after the Boston Tea Party, the colonists, having just gotten rid of their favorite beverage, made a tea of goldenrod and called it "Liberty Tea". It was also used as a dye amongst the colonists. Other legends tell that the stem could be used by some as a divining rod, and that when it grows near a house, the occupants will be granted good fortune.

Traditionally used as a tea, sometimes available in tea bags. The tea should be drunk between meals. May also be powdered and taken as a capsule or extract.

Precautions
Do not use during acute attacks of kidney stones or other kidney disorders. Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family should exercise caution. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
