A tincture is an infusion of an herb or herbs, for medicinal use. Certain preparations of liquids are used to extract the beneficial plant compounds out of the plant solids. My tinctures are highly concentrated so a few drops goes a long way. To use a tincture, simply add a few drops to a glass of water and drink it. All of our bottles are labeled with instructions.

Usnea is a type of lichen that grows on the trees, bushes, and rocks.

It has long been used in traditional medicine. The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates is believed to have used it to treat urinary ailments, and it’s regarded as a treatment for wounds and inflammation of the mouth and throat in South African folk medicine.

Nowadays, usnea is commonly used to aid weight loss, soothe sore throats, accelerate wound healing, and reduce pain and fever. Some people even suggest it may help fight certain types of cancer.

It has been shown in studies to reduce inflammation, speed wound healing by increasing the bodies own collagen production, and even protect against staph bacteria.

Usnea has been shown in studies to be just as effective as the antibiotic commonly used to treat tick bites and Lymes.

Usnea is rich in polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that helps fight cell damage caused by unstable compounds known as free radicals.

In turn, this antioxidant activity may safeguard against various diseases, including cancer. Studies suggest that usnic acid may help prevent cancer cell growth and kill cancerous cells while avoiding non-cancerous ones.

Usnic acid, the main active compound in usnea, is a popular ingredient in weight loss supplements, including fat burners. It’s believed to promote weight loss by increasing your metabolic rate.
