Soapwort General Information
Soapwort is a perennial with a single upright stem that grows to 2 feet. The oval leaves have pointed tips and smooth edges. The whitish pink or rose flowers have five petals that grow in clumps at the top of the stem. Soapwortís old folk names come from its best known characteristic - itís ability to form a soap-like lather. This herb contains high amounts of saponins which are natural cleansers. Early American settlers used Soapwort lather to clean everything from handmade lace to pewter vessels. Medicinally, they used it for the treatment of skin eruptions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, and boils. They crushed roots were used as a remedy for poison ivy. Soapwort has diuretic, laxative, purgative, and expectorant properties.
