Harvesting some delicious Usnea. I love this beautiful lichen.
Usnea has been used by Chinese, Greek, and Egyptian healers since 1600 B.C.. it’s a potent antibiotic with antiviral & anti-fungal properties it has capabilities of healing lung and upper respiratory tract infections as well as urinary tract infections, kidney, and bladder infections.
I’m so excited to be creating tinctures and use the spare for other fun projects.
