Harvested by hand, with love and care from the forest and gardens of Robinwood, this is front line of immune support and microbial defence. Usnea, Spilanthes, and Echinacea in an artfully packaged 3 piece set of 2oz tinctures.
At the first sign of sickness, when you feel that tickle, that twinge, that irritation. When you feel run down, and need to round up the troops. When you are freaked out that you might have been exposed to COVID. Usnea and Echinacea are there for you, to take in dropper form every few hours, and Spilanthes stands by too. This is very effective throat spray; a couple of spritzes and your throat feels instant relief.
The bright and tiny threads of Usnea lichen are an excellent antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-viral medicine. Usnea does wonders for the immune system, and is a perfect tincture to take at first sign of a cold or flu, and it doesn’t even taste bad! It’s perhaps most widely used for upper respiratory and throat infections, sinusitis and acute/chronic lung infections, both as a preventative and in acute situations. It is especially effective against strep and staph infections. This is one that I take whenever I am feeling run down in the slightest. Drink, gargle, dispense by the dropper-full!!!

Spilanthes is a low growing frost-sensitive annual that with red and yellow button flowers that, given even the slightest nibble, will produce a tingling, numbing, saliva producing reaction in your mouth. It’s quite an experience, but fret not! It’s not poison, it’s medicine. That is the action of the alchylamides, the medicinal constituent of the plant that is also a powerful anti-microbial, and immune stimulant. This is why this herb makes a most wonderful throat spray.

Is there any more well known herbal medicine than Echinacea? I’m not an expert at how and when exactly it gained such notability, but it’s now a mainstream first defence against the common cold, and I love it’s place in my garden and medicine cabinet. It’s probably most effective in tincture form, but can also be taken as a tea.Echinacea is best used short term, during acute infections. It has a stimulating energy, is safe for children (lower dose), and should be taken at the first sign of sickness or exposure to infection every few hours until symptoms resolve. Also can be used after surgery, injury or infection to help body heal.
