Yerba Santa Bundles
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.
