Hydrastis Canadensis.

Golden Seal; Orange Root. Ranunculaceae.

Grows in most parts of the United States, in rich woodlands, most abundantly in the states of Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia.

The tincture is prepared from the fresh root.

This plant was first mentioned by Linnaeus, in 1753. The first provings were made under Hale, by Nichols, Burt and others. (See Hale's New Rem.).

About the year 1866, provings were made by Whitesides, Weaver and others (see Am. Hom. Obs.), and a year or two later Hydrastis was proved under Lippe by a class of students of the Hahnemann College of Philadelphia, with different dilutions, mostly the 30th.

A monograph on Hydrastis, by Chas. Mohr, was printed in the Hah. Mo., November, 1886.
