Starwest Botanicals, Centaury, 1 lb Organic Whole Herb
Botanical Name: Centaurium erythraea
Common Names: Feverwort, Bitter herb, common centaury, European Centaury
Centaury herb, or Centaurium erythraea, is among those bulk organic herbs about which many claims are made; such organic herbs do not seem to address a specific function, however, unlike other bulk herbs for sale. It is commonly sold, along with other herbs and spices in bulk, for its stomachic properties. In Europe, where the Centaurium erythraea is indigenous, dried centaury herb is made into a decoction or tea and drunk as a "tonic."
Rolf Stühmer, German-born author of Das Große Buch der Naturheilkunde ("The Big Book of Health," first published in 1997 by the University of Potsdam Press) believes that every good store of quality bulk herbs should include organic centaury herb.
Ground erythraea is also known to gourmands and cooks throughout the Western World as an aromatic spice; therefore, you'll often find centaury herb with bulk dried herbs for sale. If you are looking for a new way to season a dish, the next time you buy organic bulk herbs you may wish to consider adding Centaurium erythraea to your order.
