A tea is made from the leaves and the roots. The aromatic root is candied and used as a masticator.
The plant prefers acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils. It can grow in full shade (deep woodland) or semi-shade (light woodland). It requires moist soil. Best is sown in the Fall or Winter. Shipped during November and March.

Ginseng is said to be highly good for the metabolism, and promotes general well being. It has a reputation as an aphrodisiac, but this seems to be totally based on the fact that it relaxes the overly tense person a bit. If you suffer from back pain or T.M.J. adding this to a tea of Catnip and slippery elm may help. It is also presumably useable as an ingredient in a meade or magewine. Order and sow in the Fall or Winter.
