Skunk Cabbage Root Oil – New Product

Herbal Oils - Sunstone HerbsWe’ve just added Skunk Cabbage Root Oil to our product list. We’ve been getting a lot of requests for it lately so we decided to use some of the root that we normally have on hand to make Skunk Cabbage Root Tincture and make up a batch of oil.

Here’s a link to an interesting article about Skunk Cabbage, Symplocarpus foetidus, that appeared in the Garden Notebook section of the New York Times a couple of years ago. It’s a lovingly written ode to this under-appreciated plant. From the article:

“I have to respect a plant that is often dismissed as smelly and expendable. Someday, it may be appreciated for its tenacity and cunning, even for its beauty.
