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.
