Plant Story

 

Acorus calamus is a perennial plant commonly called Calamus or Sweet flag. The leaves, roots andstems of this plant are all edible. The powdered rhizome has a spicy flavor and is used as a substitutefor ginger and cinnamon. Calamus has a long history of medicinal use in traditional herbal medicine. Itis used externally to treat skin eruptions and rheumatic pains and internally to treat cancer, diarrhoea,dyspepsia, and epilepsy. Phytochemically, the presence of saponins, flavonoids, tannins, and volatileoils have been reported. In Korea, there was once a tradition of women washing their hair withcalamus-infused water on the day of Dano, the fifth day of the fifth month in lunar calendar to celebratethe end of sowing season, and they believed their hair would become silky and shiny. Scientific studieshave shown A. calamus to possess anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, which support thehistorical medicinal uses.
