Osha, also known as ‘Bear Medicine’ or Chuchupate is a revered high altitude herb. It has a long history of use by Native American and Hispanic cultures in the Southwest. Regarded as one of the best remedies for respiratory infections, Osha is a great ally during episodes of bronchitis, common colds and the flu when there is copious mucus and congestion. Additionally, Osha enhances immune function and helps shorten the duration of colds. A further benefit is that will soothe and anesthetize a sore throat and reduce bronchial inflammation. The Osha we use in this product is wild-harvested at it’s peak of potency around the autumnal equinox each year, from a beautiful and clean, high elevation environment. The roots are harvested with great care in an ethical manner, following strict protocol for the survival and health of this precious herb. These roots are shade dried and then broken down by hand into small pieces and infused in a base of raw and unfiltered Colorado wildflower honey. Chewing on the whole root pieces offers the plant’s complete array of constituents and is a highly potent way to take this great medicine.*
To Use: Scoop out one little piece of honey saturated Osha root and chew on it until all the flavor from it is gone. The entire time you chew it – it will bath your throat in it’s powerful medicine. You will also be breathing in the therapeutic vapors.
