Purple echinacea, also known as purple coneflower and Sampson root, is a member of the daisy family that occurs naturally in the eastern United States and is widely cultivated elsewhere.

While the herb provides long-lasting, showy flowers all summer, the root of the plant is harvested in late fall for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities. The dried root is typically either decocted to make teas and infusions or is tinctured in alcohol.

Echinacea is a North American plant in the Asteraceae family, which includes daisy, aster and sunflower. Native Americans of the Plains and Pacific Northwest of North America called Echinacea “elk root” because injured or sick elk would be observed searching for a consuming the plant. Taking a cue from the animal, various Native American tribes used the herb for centuries to address pain, inflammation and infections.

Echinacea root contains a complex variety of phytochemicals responsible for its effects, including immunostimulating polysaccharides, alkamides, glycoproteins and flavonoids.
