Alkanet

The first known, recorded use of alkanet root goes back to 70 C.E. when it was very common to use it as a dye for wool, wood, and other natural fibers. In Latin, the word tinctoria translates to “used for dyeing or staining”, while its alternate name, Anchusa, translates to “paint” in greek. Native to the Mediterranean, alkanet gives a ruby red color dye.
