Profile: Sassafras bark has a distinct flavor and was originally a key component of root beer. Sassafras albidum, which was formerly utilized by the indigenous inhabitants of eastern North America, is still used by herbalists for its beneficial characteristics even if it is no longer used commercially in beverages. The fragrant bark, which is also known as sassafrass, can be prepared for topical treatments or used in infusions.
Young trees have "mitten-like" leaves, sometimes with two "thumbs," that resemble mittens. The leaves become more rounded and indentation-free as the tree ages, occasionally growing to a height of 100 feet (30 meters) with a trunk diameter of up to 6 feet (200 cm). The Lauraceae family is the home of sassafras.
