Since bears have a natural affinity for the root of the Osha root plant, it has been referred to as "Bear root." The Navajo credit the bear for teaching them the medicinal value of the Osha root plant.
Osha Roots are often dried in the sun, and although the large roots can take up to a few days to dry, Osha root contains powerful oils that prohibit bacteria, mold, and mildew growth. Because of the presence of these oils, Osha roots can be properly stored for years without deterioration.
