Acorus calamus Health effects and herbal facts

Known as
calamus flagroot myrtle-flag sweet calamus sweet-flag sweetroot

Acorus calamus is a tall perennial wetland monocot of the Acoraceae family, in the genus Acorus. In spite of common names that include the words "rush" and "sedge," it is neither a rush nor sedge. The scented leaves and more strongly scented rhizomes have traditionally been used medicinally and to make fragrances, and the dried and powdered rhizome has been used as a substitute for ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.
