Historical evidence documents that yerba santa has been used in tea and medicinally for the management of bruises and rheumatic pain. The plant also has been used as an expectorant and in the treatment of respiratory diseases. Yerba Santa is called “Sacred Herb” by the Chumash Indians in California and grows in the arid hilly areas of northern New Mexico, California, and Oregon. It is also known as Bear’s Weed, Consumptive Weed, Gum Bush, and Mountain Balm. It is in the Hydrophyllaceae, or waterleaf, family and regulates the water element in the body. As such, it is excellent for emotional and soul blockages and helps to release grief, despair, and melancholy, which can be held in the heart and lungs.
