General Information

Parts of some goldenrods can be edible when cooked.

Goldenrods can be used for decoration and making tea. Goldenrods are, in some places, held as a sign of good luck or good fortune.

some species produce abundant nectar when moisture is plentiful before bloom, and the bloom period is relatively warm and sunny. Honey from goldenrods often is dark and strong due to admixtures of other nectars. However when there is a strong honey flow, a light (often water white), spicy-tasting honey is produced. While the bees are ripening the honey there is a rank odor and taste, but finished honey is much milder.

Thomas Edison experimented with goldenrod to produce rubber, which it contains naturally. Examples of the rubber can still be found in his laboratory, elastic and rot free after more than 50 years.

Medicinal:

The variety 'Solidago virgaurea' is used as a traditional kidney tonic. It is used by practitioners of herbal medicine as an agent to counter inflammation and irritation of the kidneys when bacterial infection or stones are present.

Goldenrod has also been used as part of a tincture to aid in cleansing of the kidney bladder during a healing fast, in conjunction with Potassium broth and specific juices.

'Solidago odora' is also sold as a medicinal, for these issues: mucus, kidney bladder cleansing and stones, colds, digestion.
