Black cohosh root was traditionally employed for its healthful benefits by Native Americans living throughout the plant’s range. Named after its black and twisting rhizome, black cohosh root is typically made into a tea or an extract.
It was a favorite herbal remedy for Native Americans. The name cohosh is from the Algonquian tribe, and means rough, referring to the feel of the rhizome. It was given the name "bugbane" because the flowers have such a strong odor and have been used to effectively repel insects. Other common names include black snakeroot and rheumatism weed.
