Nettle root is the common name for it in the south. I used it on my daughter when she was a baby. She was not sleeping through the night running a fever. An older lady in our church said she used it for year with her children and grandchild. I was real hesitant but I have tried teething tablet orajel, everything. Nothing helped so I went to her house she cut the root stringed it like a necklace and my daughter wear it till it fell off months later. Never had another fever or sleepless night.

WHENEVER A BABY IN OUR FAMILY STARTED TEETHING, MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD GET A SMALL LENGTH OF "YELLOW ROOT" AND CUT IT INTO 1/4 TO 1/2 INCH CHUNKS AND MAKE A SMALL NECKLACE. SHE WOULD MAKE THEM STONG ENOUGH SO THAT THE CHILD COULD NOT BREAK IT AND PLACED IT AROUND THE BABY'S NECK AND ALL DURING TEETHING PERIODS. THE CHILDREN NEVER HAD SWELLING OR PAIN FROM THE TEETHING!!

THIS IS OR WAS USED EXTENSIVELY IN EDGAR CAYCE'S WORK AND THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS USED IT FOR CHILD BIRTHING TO HELP THE MOTHER. MORE CAN BE FOUND AT EDGAR CAYCE'S HERBALS USE'S... GOD BLESS....
