I have been fascinated with Usnea from the first time I found it growing in the wild. This magical herb is part fungi and part algae, a symbiotic relationship between the two that work together to create pretty amazing herbal medicine.
This month we’ll take a look at Usnea’s medicinal power (did you know he has been found to be more effective than penicillin against many gram-positive bacteria?), the best ways to utilize his medicine and where he can be found.
