Blue Flag, or Wild Iris, grows in damp and marshy areas throughout North America, with the rhizome used medicinally. It contains triterpenoids, salicylic and isopahtalic acids, a very small amount of volatile oil, starch, resin, an oleoresin, and tannins. Blue Flag was used widely by Native Americans as an emetic, cathartic, and diuretic, to treat wounds, and for colds, earache, and cholera. Today it is mostly used to detoxify the body. It promotes urine, bile, and bowel movement. It is particularly helpful in chronic skin conditions such as acne and eczema, especially when gallbladder and constipation issues contribute. It can cause vomiting in excessive doses. Do not use during pregnancy.
