Our yucca root is obtained from Yucca schidigera, a small shrubby plant distantly related to agave. It is a desert plant that occurs naturally in California, Nevada and Arizona. It is also grown as an ornamental due to its tall flower spikes that sport showy, cream-colored blooms.

Native Americans used the leaves of the plant to make rope and other textiles and the root to make soap. Today, yucca root is typically used to make infusions for various topical preparations and cosmetics, including natural deodorants, shampoos and hair rinses.

Yucca is a desert plant found in Mexico and the southwestern U.S., especially Baja, California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. The plant was used by Native Americans to produce various daily necessities, including soap from the saponins compounds in the root and textiles from the fibers of the leaves.

Hot water infusions of yucca root may be combined with other herbal infusions to make natural shampoos and body washes. Some effective combinations to address dandruff or troubled skin include yucca with lavender, rosemary, sage, or chamomile.
