A friend of mine has a woods by her house and there full of sassafrass. I adore the tee. She said was welcome to take as much as I wanted so I went out and got some roots. When I tried to research what I could do with it and how I would make my tea I read lots of old remadies useing it but I also read its poisonus. Now Im not sure I should use it. Dose anyone here collect there own sassafrass?
