Also known as Indian tobacco, lobelia has a long history of use by various Native American tribes. The herb is also referred to as puke weed and gag root, which suggests that ingesting large amounts of this herb isn't advisable.

Dried lobelia is most often tinctured or used to make strong infusions for herbal ointments, salves and liniments.

lobelia herb

Lobelia is a small, low-growing plant in the bellflower family that produces vibrant purple-blue flowers. The aerial parts of the plant are traditionally used to combat inflammation of the skin and respiratory disorders. The herb is also a component of herbal smoking blends, as indicated by the common names Indian tobacco and asthma weed.

Internal use of lobelia is risky, however, as indicated by other common names including pukeweed, emetic herb and gagweed. Although the herb is not considered poisonous per se, it does exert potent emetic effects due to the presence of the alkaloid lobeline.


Description: The lobelia plant is an annual plant. It grows as tall as 20 inches high. The plant is native to North America. It has blue flowers and green leaves. The aerial parts are used for medicinal purposes and are picked in the fall.

Safety: Take only as prescribed by a physical or health care provider. Eating too much of this herb may be toxic and even fatal. Do not eat the fresh plant. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
