Soapwort Root Powder - Wildcrafted


Soapwort has some obvious uses you can guess from its name. It’s been used as a soap and detergent for hundreds of years. In ancient times, soapwort was used to clean fabrics and was probably the first “laundry detergent” used by ancient peoples. And while it does work to keep things clean, it also has some medicinal uses you may be interested in knowing. It has many uses beyond doing the household chores.

Soapwort acts as an expectorant. What that means is that it thins the saliva and mucus on the body. That can be a great aid to your respiratory system when you’re in need of relief. It can help your coughs to be more productive, can help to clear the sinuses, and can loosen the tightness you may feel in your chest. Soapwort can be used for treating all kinds of respiratory infections from colds to bronchitis, and even pneumonia.

If you suffer from arthritis or rheumatism in your joints, soapwort can help to provide you with relief. It helps to reduce swelling and inflammation and thereby reduce the pain you’re feeling. You’ll get the results you need to help you function without pain and pressure on the joints.

For your skin, soapwort can also provide relief. It can help to soothe the irritation and inflammation that comes from skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. To use soapwort in this way, you’ll make a wash by infusing it and applying the wash directly to the affected skin.

To take soapwort internally, you’ll need to drink about two or three ounces of the decoction each day. However, you must make sure not to drink too much because it can become toxic in the body. In fact, if you want to take it internally, it’s best to talk to a healthcare provider before you do.

While soapwort is an effective cleaning agent, its best use is that of a provider of pain relief and relieving the symptoms of respiratory infections. You’ll want to keep soapwort in your pantry so that you’ll be able to handle coughs, colds, and arthritis pain with ease. You may even find that it can be a great relief when you have a rash or skin inflammation on your body.

Make sure you purchase high quality soapwort, like ours, that will continue to work well. Keep it on hand at all times so you’re ready for whatever comes your way.
