  • "Natures Antibiotic"  "Old mans Beard" "Beard Lichen"
    These are some of the names afforded to Usnea-  A common trype of tree lichen that grows around the world. Used for hundreds of years for its content in usnic acid. Usnic Acid (C18H16O7) is a potent antibiotic and antifungal chemical found within most Usnea species. Due to regulations, i am unable to post medicinal properties of herbs and plants, so i highly recommend that one does some serious research into this amazing lichen!

    As a wild craft herb collector, i come across ALOT of Usnea, and have now decided to add this to our collection of herbs, making them available to you and your family ! Usnea can be used in herbal teas, tinctures, and made into a salve or healing balm.  

    We use the best ethical practices, only pick sustainably and responsibly. We never damage any trees to collect resin, for herbs we reseed areas, and only pick 5% of a colony Everything is sun dried in small batches and stored in glass mason jars in a cool dark pantry. Every little ounce of work is done by hand 100%. Nothing is ever treated, sprayed or otherwise altered, this is our guarantee! Every Purchase you make 100% supports this family operated small business. Its just my husband and I, and our wonderful children!
