Although this herb is commonly called Jew's Myrtle and Knee Holly, Butchers Broom is actually a member of the lily family. Once used to make brooms to clean butchers’ blocks and to deter rodents from taking an interest in meats hanging to cure, Butchers Broom has a long history of use in Europe. In Medieval England, the young shoots were cooked and eaten like a vegetable. Today, the herb is mostly harvested for its thick, brown rhizome, which is harvested in the fall when the plant stores most of its energy for winter. Butchers Broom root is most often used to make herbal teas and tinctures.*
