  1. Blood Root is a very potent substance with an antiseptic quality…. it is surprising in its pervasiveness if combined with a proper vehicle for topical application. Go easy with experimentation on this one. It is a treasure and bain for some. If I were to compare it with a particular substance it would have to be goldenseal.
