Working with Lungwort
Lungwort is both expectorant and emollient, so it is useful for bronchitis and laryngitis. This lichen is often found as one of the ingredients in tea blends for coughs and may be safely given to children. Because of the lichen acids it contains, such as usnic acid, it has powerful antibacterial properties, especially against strep, staph, bacteria, and the organisms that are associated with tuberculosis and bacterial pneumonia.
Lungwort has a taste of BITTER and a temperature of COOL.
