Echinacea angustifolia is a member of the sunflower, daisy and aster family. The genus name for this flowering herb is taken from the Greek echinos, which means "hedgehog" in reference to the spiny cone at the center of the flower head. Similarly, "angustifolia" translates to narrow-leafed.

The dried taproot is used to prepare teas, liquid extracts and tinctures.

echinacea angustifolia root

More commonly known as purple coneflower, this herb is a popular dietary supplement as well as a garden ornamental. Its common name comes from the appearance of the flower head, which features a disk-shaped center or cone with a spiny look and feel.

Native to northwestern Canada and western and central United States, this species was well known to Native Americans. However, despite being one of the most widely used botanicals in America today, the herb didn’t gain popularity until it caught the attention of the Eclectic physicians of the mid-19th century. The pharmacological activity of Echinacea angustifolia is attributed to alkamides in the root, the same agents that lend chili peppers their fiery sting on the tongue.


Description: Echinacea is a perennial plant that grows in the United States and is commercially grown in Europe. It grows up to 20 inches high and has purple flowers that look like daisies. The Echinacea root is used for medicinal purposes and is harvested in the fall from plants that are 4 years old.

Safety: Nausea can result in high doses of Echinacea. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
