Juniper Bundles - Minis

Juniper Bundles - Minis

Juniperus sp.

Juniper was widely used by Native Americans as a medicinal plant. It was used to treat colds, as a cough medicine or as an aid to respiratory ailments by creating various decoctions made from the needles, twigs, or bark. Among the Cree, a poultice was made from the bark and applied to wounds for its believed antiseptic properties. Ceremonially, it is reported that the Cheyenne burned it as an incense to remove fear of thunder beings and also at childbirth to promote delivery. The Arapaho are said to have used a variety of juniper as a fragrance, grinding the needles for their scent.

Our juniper is wildcrafted in California. The mini bundles average 4-5 inches in length and 1 inch in width.

Mugwort Bundle

Mugwort Bundle

Artemisia douglasiana

Mugwort is a common name that is used to describe several species of sage. Our mugwort is a variety that is native to the Western United States and is known as Douglas’s Sagewort but is also called California Mugwort, and Wormwood. Native Americans used this plant medicinally and ceremonially. The Chumash, Karok, Miwok, and Yurok are said to have used it to treat rheumatism, sometimes applying the leaves as a poultice and other times making a decoction that was taken internally. The Pomo used it to treat stomachache and cramps. The Paiute used it to treat colds and fevers, placing branches over a bed of ashes and sleeping on it.

Among the Miwok, mugwort was rubbed on the body to keep ghosts away. Necklaces were made with small balls that contained mugwort and other “medicine” and when worn, were believed to prevent dreaming of the dead and would allow one to go out at night without fear of ghosts.

Our mugwort is wildcrafted in California and Oregon. Bundles average about 9 inches in length and 1½ inches in width.

Yerba Santa Bundles

Yerba Santa Bundles

Eriodictyon Californicum

Yerba Santa was extensively used as a traditional medicine by many California Indian tribes. It is said that the leaves were smoked or chewed to relieve asthma, coughs, colds, headaches, and stomachaches. Mashed leaves were applied externally to sores, cuts, wounds, and aching muscles. Mashed leaves were also used to reduce the swelling and relieve pain caused by bone fractures. Yerba Santa has a unqiue scent and is one of the few plants that actually smells "mediciney." There are several species that grow natively in California. Our variety is wildcrafted in Southern California and is commonly known as Hairy Yerba Santa. The Cahuilla called it tanwivel. Our bundles are approxinately 8-9 inches long and about 2 inches wide.
