    Would you tincture the root and arial parts for medicine, like other echinacea species?

      Hello GroundCherry,
      Yes, the Echinaceas are medicinally interchangeable, as long as you have the native species and not some kind of fancy selection. I personally don’t find the aerial parts of any of the species to be that helpful–a little bit–due to presence of antiinflammatory alkylamides–but the root has more of this, and the root has the immune stimulating melanin-based compounds as well, so I generally just tincture the root these days.

      Right, and for anyone interested in why Echinacea stimulates immune response, here is a great study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15710333
