Yerba Santa, is called the holy herb and has certainly earned its name. Proper name: Eriodictyon Californicum. Some refer to it as " Bear's Weed". A favorite in most Alchemist trunks; myself included. Yerba Santa, although powerful, is no cure for Covid-19. However, its ability to keep your lungs open, help fight against congestion, mucus build up in the sinus, and lungs makes this herb a powerhouse addition to your wellness arsenal in a time when we're all fighting to stay healthy during this awful pandemic.
You're probably wondering how to use Yerba Santa? Applying only a half ounce of dried whole leaves to boiling water. Let it steep until the water is golden brown. Add a squeeze of lemon and agave', or your choice of sweetener to taste and enjoy once, or twice a day!
