Known by names such as Indian Shamrock, India Balm, and Birth Root, Beth Root originates in middle and western portions of the United States. It has long been used by the Native American peoples of those regions. There, they used it as a treatment during child birth, perhaps to ease excess blood flow as many of the more modern traditions for the root seem to hold. Interestingly, and perhaps due to its link to fertility through its application during child birth, Beth Root also found a great deal of use by some Native Americans as an aphrodisiac.
In folklore, some traditions name it as a powerful addition to spells in which you are seeking to turn back or keep away negative magic, particularly when establishing a stationary sanctuary or otherwise protecting a home. It is also well known as a powerful aid in empowering and protecting your family.
