A remedy crafted from the Sierras - Coyote Elixir brings together a warming blend of Osha, Elderberry & Coyote Mint to help boost your system to endure whatever may come its way - most specifically the warm-achy-tingle in the throat feeling before an influenza of sorts.
Best taken at the first sign of cold/flu/immune weakness. 30 - 60 drops when needed - up to 5x/day.
Ingredients: Ligusticum grayii root, Sabucus nigra berry, Monardella villosa aerial parts, Nevada County organic honey, biodynamic grape spirits.
Osha (Ligusticum grayii) - Native to the wet forest floors of the high western ranges - it's populations are many yet elusive, rendering it at risk/endangered for some, but in locations where it's presence is dense, it gives permission for sustainable and useful harvest. A member of the parsley family, it is identifiable by its hairy base and acrid spicy scent. A powerful remedy against viral infections, esp. with tendencies towards sore throat/bronchial infection & discomforts. Osha is warming and drying - may agitate hot/dry constitution - combines well with cooling and moistening herbs (licorice, marshmallow)
Elderberry (Sabucus nigra) - A well known remedy for cold/flu, elderberries support many functions of the body including immune support in the instance of a viral infection - no hardcore science here but one of the active constituents in elderberry has been shown to rapidly dismantle the method in which the influenza reproduces within our healthy cells - literally stopping the flu in its tracks. Elderberry acts against a specific enzyme - neuraminidase - found on ALL strains of influenza - making it a broad spectrum anti-viral, compared to certain...e'hem..."shots". Elderberries are cooling and astringent - pairing well with Osha & Mountian Mint to move and clear heat from the body - as well as moving and drying up abundance mucous. Immune supporting, alterative - helping detoxify extracellular fluidand rich in flavonoids for cardiovascular support - we love Elder!
Coyote Mint (Monardella villosa) - one of California's many wild Monardas, Coyote Mint is an effective diaphoretic - helping relieve and naturally break a fever. It has a pleasant taste, rich in antimicrobial volatile oils.
