History: This herb is usually referred to as American Spikenard to differentiate it from the fragrant spikenard of the Bible and Sarsaparilla. All spikenards have been popular in American medicine. The root is similar to Sarsaparilla and has similar properties. They are in the same family as ginseng and do look like giant ginsengs. They are all called "manroot," although spikenard's root is much larger and less inclined to have ginseng's distinct, humanlike form. The Cherokee and New World settlers made a tea for backache. The Shawnee used it for flatulence, coughs, asthma and breast pain. The Menominee used it as a cure for blood poisoning. Was included in the US National Formulary from 1916-1965.
