Description

Tincture made by a process of hydro-ethanolic percolation, with a ratio of 1 part Osha Root to 3 parts liquid. Liquid comprises of 55% water and 45% sugar beet derived ethanol. 

Ligusticum porteri, known as Osha, is a perennial herb found in parts of the Rocky Mountains and northern Mexico, especially in the southwestern United States.

Its common names include osha root, Porter's lovage, Porter's licorice-root, lovage, wild lovage, Porter's wild lovage, loveroot, Porter's ligusticum, bear medicine, bear root, Colorado cough root, Indian root, Indian parsley, wild parsley, mountain ginseng, mountain carrot, nipo and empress of the dark forest.

Osha is strictly a mountain plant, and it is most commonly found in deep, moist soils rich in organic material. The plant requires partial shade. Osha is widely distributed in the Rocky Mountains and the high mountains of northwestern Mexico.

Osha is dependent on mycorrhizal fungi, and attempts to artificially cultivate the plant outside of its habitat have not been successful. Cultivation in areas where osha naturally grows have been more successful.

Osha has the typical appearance of members of the parsley family, with parsley-like leaves and umbels of white flowers.

The common Mexican name for the plant, chuchupate, is said to be an ancient Aztec term meaning "bear medicine." Bears respond to the herb like cats do to catnip.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Antibacterial - The tea, powdered root, or tincture is also antibacterial and excellent on skin wounds to prevent infection.

Antiviral - Because of its strong antiviral proterties, it should be taken at the first minimal signs of flu or cold.

Decongestant – Traditionally Osha is burned to relieve congestion associated with colds and flu.

Diaphoretic - Osha is extremely good for sore throats and bronchial inflammations, and will soothe and anesthetize almost immediately, and, with its diaphoretic properties, causes sweating, thereby helping to eliminate toxins.

Digestive - Osha is excellent for stomach indigestion and for cramping or pain associated with the beginnings of ulceration.

Respiratory - the roots currently are used commercially to treat bronchitis, influenza and other respiratory problems. Because the root strongly affects the respiratory system, making it stronger, it seems to help those travelling, or living, at higher altitudes.
