If using as a single, it is best to begin with a very small dose (1-3 drops in water) and increase over several days to recommended dose. There are certain individuals who may respond to the use of this root with a one time body rash- sometimes mild and for other people more extensive and uncomfortable. If this should occur, simply discontinue use. Rash should resolve in 1-2 weeks.
