Anyone interested in the proper uses of Chaparral (Creosote bush) should get Charles Kane's Herbal Medicine of the American Southwest. It discusses the proper uses of the bush (makes a great topical application for pre-cancerous skin patches from too much sun) as well as cautions - liver irritation. It's not necessarily the best herb to taken as a 'cleanse' due to its potential toxicities, but used properly for a number of problems, it's more powerful than many other herbs used for similar things. Anyway...excellent book, covering most of our desert plant life...highly recommended.Jun 7, 2011
