Goldenseal skin benefits are diverse, from acne to eczema to wounds! Goldenseal is not only a natural acne remedy but a powerhouse of skin and health benefits. I don’t know about you, but I seem to see turmeric everywhere as the natural cure for everything, from wrinkles to cancer to arthritis. Well this ‘Indian Turmeric’ Hydrastis Canadensis, or more commonly, Goldenseal, is bursting with potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that benefit the body in so many ways, but today ill be focusing on Goldenseal skin benefits.
Healing Powers Of Goldenseal
Goldenseal is a natural anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and healing herb. This hair-stemmed herb bears a single sizeable raspberry-like flower in the summer. It is native to Canada and the USA and was a traditional medicinal herb of the Native Americans. It is a fantastic multi-use herb used traditionally for its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and astringent properties and is an extremely bitter tonic. Often used as a tonic to help with digestive problems. In recent times Goldenseal has been used as a natural antibiotic, immune booster and may even be a cancer fighter.
A Vitamin Powerhouse
- Goldenseal’s skin healing properties are thanks to fancy-named phytochemical alkaloids: berberine, canadine and hydrastine that produce a powerful ‘astringent effect’ on mucous membranes, which means it has a calming and healing effect on the skin.
- Berberine gives it its orange colour and most of its medicinal properties.
- Goldenseal is a rich source of Vitamin A, B, C and E.
- It contains important minerals iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, and manganese.
- High in essential fatty acids.

Natural Skin Antiseptic
If you’re a klutz like me and always end up with unexplainable cuts and bumps, especially on your hands, make sure your first aid kit includes some Goldenseal in the form of our Phytoseptic cream. Our Phytoseptic cream is safe to slather on minor open wounds. Goldenseal was used to treat wounds in the civil war. It gets its name from the golden-yellow marks that on the stem when it is broken, resembling a gold wax letter seal, giving us the name goldenseal. Cherokee Indians used Goldenseal to dye their clothing, stain their faces, to heal wounds and as a wash for sore eyes. There are restrictions on the export of Goldenseal as it was once over-cultivated. However, it is now controlled.
