Profile: Ruscus aculeatus is a thorny evergreen shrub with limited growth. Butcher's broom gets its name from its historical use as a bundle to sweep and clean butcher's blocks throughout the Mediterranean, northern Africa, and the Middle East. Its medicinal benefits, however, go beyond those of a broom and are used in traditional European herbal therapies. Butcher's broom root is usually extracted or steeped as a tea.
Butcher's broom is a lily (Liliaceae) family member that also goes by the name of box holly. Tea or extract are common ways to prepare dried root. To make a tea from chopped root, add 1 teaspoon to a cup of boiling water and steep for 10 minutes in a covered teapot. It's not a good idea to heat up the teapot. Before drinking, strain the liquid.
