The leaves and flowers make a tasty medicinal tea, and are also prepared as a tincture and honey infusion. Goldenrod effectively clears the sinuses, making it highly useful in treating allergies, head colds, and sinus infections. It is also a diuretic and therefore a helpful remedy for urinary tract infections and water retention, or edema.
You can use any species of goldenrod for medicine; just taste the leaves of various species to see which you enjoy the most. The leaves smell of resin and salt, and should have a warm piney astringent flavor.
