Bear Root n' Honey

*This Osha root is ethically & sustainably wildharvested to protect the plant population of this very important and Sacred root. The roots are harvested by a Medicine Man in a Sacred way beginning with an offering...always asking first for permission from Great Spirit, the Spirit of the plant, the land and the Spirits who dwell and protect that land. The entire harvest is spent in prayer and followed by a blessing.*
It is incredibly important to protect our plants, especially those that are considered "at-risk". We are all stewards of the land and it is our responsibility to stand up for them, to be their voice.

 

Wildharvested Ligusticum porteri, or Osha, also known as "bear root” is infused with “Pure Beeing” Galveston Island raw honey. 

The benefits & properties of raw honey include: antioxidants (help protect your body from free radical damage), antibacterial and antifungal properties, phytonutrients (provide antioxidant & anti-inflammatory benefits). Raw honey is a pure, unfiltered & unpasteurized sweetener and can help with the compliance of its osha infusion, while adding extra nutrients. Raw honey can help boost the immune system.

Indigenous tribes have observed bears eating osha in order to renew their energy when they are sick or weak from hibernation. Osha has antibacterial, antimicrobial & antiviral properties. "The plant possesses strong antiviral properties, and should be used at the first minimal signs of flu or cold. It is extremely good for sore throats and bronchial inflammations and can soothe and anesthetize almost immediately. The tea, powdered root, or tincture is antibacterial and excellent on skin wounds to prevent infection. It is especially good in cough syrups. Osha is also excellent for stomach indigestion"(1)

"Osha is a plant of the west, the "looks within place." It is an herb for warriors for those who must go into darkness and face their own demons. ...For people who are trying to develop their own warrior strength and for those who fight the darkness within. Osha goes to the root of the matter. It is a plant that helps those who are going through destructuring. It understands the stripping away process necessary to deep transformation. If is for those who struggle to learn the "Truce of the Bear." Much of the energy of osha is bear energy."(2)
