Butcher’s broom root powder comes from a small evergreen shrub native to Asia, Europe and North Africa. The name Butcher’s Broom describes one of its traditional uses, which consisted of taking the stiff branches of the plant and making them into small brooms to help clean up the butcher’s counters.

Butcher’s Broom, also known as Knee Holly, is commonly used as a supportive tonic for the vascular system and can often be found in the form of teas, tinctures and capsules.
