Devils Club

The use of Devils Club by First Nations for traditional healing has been happening for generations. There is a lot  to say about this powerful plant. It holds duality. Like most things in life, Devils Club requires balance and patience. Above all, Devils Club embodies traditional healing and a spiritual connection to Mother Earth. In other words, I FEEL my ancestors in this plant.

Traditionally, Devils Club has many uses that make it so appealing. It is effective at treating many conditions. These include arthritis, skin conditions, cancers, wounds, fever, TB, stomach troubles, coughs/colds, diabetes, low blood sugar and pneumonia. Secondly, it offers anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. Thirdly, Devils Club contains anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, these properties soothe skin conditions, redness, swelling and minor skin infections. Furthermore, Devils Club is known to relieve joint inflammation.  I use Devils Club in my home for many of these remedies.  

It has been a spiritual journey journey getting this traditional healing plant into our oils and bottles. I would like to thank you for taking this journey with me, and allowing Devils Club to shine with all its light and healing in your homes.
