Sassafras (Sassafras Albidum)

A tree of the laurel family - growing in the eastern and Pacific north-west regions of the U.S.A. Its roots are used to make a spicy-flavoured lemon scented oil, and the leaves to make filé powder (used as a spice). Sassafras tea was once a popular tonic drink, and said to help sufferers of gout and arthritis.
