Siberian Rhodiola Rosea, or roseroot, is often used as a tonic in homeopathic medicine. Roseroot helps regulate the body's hormones and aids in relieving stress in several ways. It ensures important neurotransmitter activity that can be threatened by stress, and it increases brain serotonin, which regulates your emotions, including feelings of happiness. If you don't want to stress yourself out finding it (the whole point of roseroot is to reduce stress), then follow these steps.

- Moderately Easy
Visit a local food cooperative to find roseroot. I don't mean Whole Foods, which is not a cooperative so much as a health food store. Call first and ask if the cooperative has Siberian Rhodiola Rosea in stock before venturing out.
Look for roseroot in the condiments or vitamins section of the cooperative. Roseroot is likely to be found near these areas of the store.
Ask an employee to help you or look for roseroot under "rooseroot" if you don't see Siberian Rhodiola Rosea written on any bottles. You will probably be able to find it as an oil, powder or pill. Decide which kind you want, what brand you prefer and how much you want to pay for it.
Order from the Internet if there is a need. If you call the cooperative and learn that it does not sell any roseroot or if it is sold out, you can always find it online. This purchase method may take longer and can be a little less reliable.
Tips and warnings
- You may want to get a book or consult literature about roseroot first. It is always preferable to be knowledgeable about the substance before you use it.
