blending and products. It has been used medicinally for at least 1000 years.

species. This, combined with the hairlike structure of the lichen, is why Usnea
was historically used to treat surface wounds when sterile gauze and modern
antibiotics were unavailable.
in vitamin C, Usnea is edible. In modern American herbal medicine, it is
primarily used for lung and upper respiratory tract infections, and urinary
a Carbon Dioxide extraction, either "select" or "total." It is a
natural, environmentally sound form of extraction that yields the highest
therapeutic quality. Click here for more information on this extraction process.
