Where can I get Virginia snake root liquid, I use if for bee bites. I’m allergic to bees, my throat closes. I can’t take an epi pen. It works great for poison ivy and my friend successfully took it for a rattlesnake bit the doctor were having problems with even after anti venom. But the health food store stopped selling it.
Or can I grow it. How would I harvest it and use it?
