The super herbs in our blend


Ligusticum porteri

Native to high elevations in the Rocky Mountains, Osha is a warming herb that supports a healthy immune system, respiratory system, and digestive system (acting on the gut-oral-lung axis).*

Each complimentary herb within this tincture supports lung health from several different angles. This formula contains a blend of “damp-draining”, “heat-clearing” and aromatic bitter herbs utilized in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western herbalism to help to open, clear, and support immune health.*

About the


The “gut-oral-lung” microbiome

Both the gut and the lungs have their own microbiome, which communicate in a constant, bidirectional manner via the “gut-lung axis”. The health of one directly affects the health of the other, with countless studies observing that lung imbalances are directly associated with gut microbiome disturbances. 

When looking at lung health in terms of the ‘big picture’ (rather than a quick fix), we know that restoring balance to the gut microbiome leads to lung health and resilience in the face of both environmental and immune challenges. This formula goes a step further to support both the gut and oral microbiome, as these two are intimately intertwined.*

Formulated with traditional herbs

This blend contains Ginger and Sweet Annie, which are considered “damp-draining” herbs that support mucus balance in the lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). 

Honeysuckle is considered “heat-clearing” to specifically target damp heat that can impact the lung microbiome. Dong Quai and Osha are included for healthy circulation to the lungs, as their rich aromatics are considered energetically opening and clearing. Red Root encourages lymphatic health to round out the formula with immune support for a complete approach.*
