Why Herbal Pumpkin?

We work with experienced cultivators who have harvested cascara sagrada by hand for generations. Wild-crafted and sustainably sourced in the Pacific Northwest, our cascara is harvested each year from mid-May to August from trees between 10-20 years old. After harvest, the fresh bark is ground into small chunks then kiln-dried to age perfectly before being ground again into powder.

Key Ingredients

Pumpkin seeds
cascara sagrada bark
marshmallow root
slippery elm bark
The Story behind Herbal Pumpkin. Pumpkin seeds were used by Native North Americans and in Traditional Chinese Medicine for targeted intestinal support. Since its discovery by Spanish settlers in the 1600s, Rhamnus purshiana bark has been used as a natural laxative throughout the world. Native American tribes shared this natural wonder with the Spaniards, who named it cascara sagrada, or “holy bark,” in honor of its effectiveness. Marshmallow root was used by the Egyptians and Greeks thousands of years ago. Today, herbal and Ayurveda practitioners use it for respiratory and intestinal benefits. This root contains amino acids and beneficial glycosides that may exert a positive influence on airways. Elm trees grow commonly in New England and the Great Lakes region. When mixed with water, the inner bark creates a lubricating gel that coats and soothes tissues. The Dakota and other tribes boiled the fresh inner bark and drank it as a natural laxative.
