Here is an easy to understand guide for echinacea http://www.gardenguides.com/articles/coneflower.htm
I really recommend you cut the root up before drying... you will need a hacksaw to cut it up when dried! :o)
for contraindications http://www.herbmed.org/Herbs/Herb6.htm
I know it stops working after like 8 days, so really short term is all that is needed.
