What Golden rod herb Is:

When early American tax protesters tossed all that tea into Boston Harbor, the colonists turned to, among other plants, goldenrod, brewing its long, thin leaves into what was called liberty tea. They were using socially what Native Americans had long used medicinally. Americans took advantage of some of the 20 or so native species of this tall, aromatic perennial, which in the fall is topped with bright yellow flowers. But the species discussed here, S. virgaurea, wasn't one of them. It's a native of Europe, where it was a favored treatment for water retention, urinary complaints, and intestinal problems.

Also known as woundwort and Aaron's rod, golden rod has diuretic, antiinflammatory, anti-micorbial and astrigent actions.
