Usnea is a fantastic choice for wounds. Using Usnea lichen in wounds can help treat or prevent infection. It also has wound-healing abilities that can accelerate the healing process. To use Usnea on a wound you might try it as a powdered herb or, if the wound is not infected, as a salve. Do not apply tinctures to open wounds. In addition to tincture form, we offer whole Usnea Florida lichen, wild harvested from our pristine forest in Brooksville. Usnea will not grow where there is air pollution.

Due to its bitter taste, Usnea encourages digestion and was historically used by herbalists to treat indigestion.
