Yerba Santa Elixir: Holy Lung Medicine!

18.00

It's not named "Holy Herb" for nothing.

One of the best tasting medicinal plants out there, I can't help but put a leaf in my mouth whenever I'm out on a walk. This has been a great learning practice for me with this plant because I get to experience its medicine firsthand in a very direct way- I notice that if I have extra phlegm in my lungs, just chewing on and swallowing one small leaf will immediately bring it up and out (where it belongs!).

This expectorant effect is due to the resinous leaves' action on the mucus membranes- where they coat the cells and keep the tissues hydrated and nourished during acute illness.

Alongside its effect on expelling excess phlegm, Yerba Santa also dilates the bronchial tubes, making it a useful ally for folks dealing with asthma or allergies.

With a history of treating colds, flus, bronchitis, and even tuberculosis, this is powerful lung medicine, and it's slight anti-microbial properties can help to address any infection that is present as well.

The leaves are resinous and sticky, and this elixir contains much of that medicinal resin. Shake it before using it to disperse these particles throughout the bottle.

Ingredients: Wildcrafted Yerba Santa leaves, Everclear, spring water, raw honey

The raw honey is, of course, also anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory.

(The resins need a high-proof alcohol to be extracted, hence the Everclear. We then cut the finished tincture with spring water so that you're not just shooting highproof alcohol, and then honey is added in order to make it an elixir).

It is super yummy!!!

Take a dropperful once an hour or whenever you feel it's needed to address your issue. Less for children (use your best judgement).
