Medicine in the Wild

In the southwest it is important to recognize the plant which we call Brigham Tea(after Brigham Young).
I collect the plants and then dry them for tea. It has tremendous versatility. I have used it for teas for anyone feeling ill in the house, or as a pick me up tea. It is funny that the pharmacy is not the first place I race to for many needs.

So if you see the plant, clip off the stems and take home and dry. I dry them in a brown paper sack and then store in a jar. We must never minimize the value of foods/medicines in our environment. It would be a wise investment to buy some books about your region and learn of the native plants-which are edible and which are toxic.

Here are several links to learn more about the tea:
Brigham Tea
Viable Herbal Solutions
Ephedra( genus)
