Summary
Blood root contains compounds which destroy tissue upon contact. It can be very dangerous to the human body when consumed or applied to the skin. Never the less, some individuals choose to use the root to attempt to get rid of skin tags and other growths, similar to how they would be burned or cut off in a clinical settings. Doing so without the proper guidance of a healthcare professional can cause more harm than good, so we urge much caution with this herb and ask that it be used responsibly to avoid any self harm or harm to others.
