Avena Botanicals Usnea

Avena Botanicals Usnea - 1 oz


Avena Botanicals Usnea supports a healthy immune system. Soothes the throat & supports the lungs.*


Usnea lichen grows on old wood, fallen down branches, and on live trees. Older patches grow thick, blowing like light green and gray curtains in the salty breeze. Usnea has a deep affinity for the mucous membranes of the body, especially the lungs, sinuses, throat, and urinary tract. This lichen also greatly supports the mucous membranes that run along the digestive system and in the vagina. Usnea encourages healthy immune function and helps to balance occasional heat and irritation in the body.


Taste / Energetics: cooling, drying, aromatic, slightly sweet, slightly powdery, protective, regenerative. 


Actions: immune supportive, expectorant, mucous membrane tonic.


When to reach for it: For supporting the mucous membranes of the lungs, throat, urinary tract, or vagina, especially when accompanied by heat. To reinforce deep and clear, healthy breathing. When seeking extra support for the microbiome or tissues of the gastrointestinal tract. To offer resilience to the immune and respiratory systems after mild, occasional exposure to challenging environmental conditions such as fire or fumes.
