100% Certified organic Lobelia
Lobelia is a powerful antispasmodic used for respiratory and muscles disorders. In common with the other Lobelia species, it was a traditional Native American remedy for many conditions. It was used as a “puke weed” to induce vomiting, as a remedy for worms and venereal disease, and as an expectorant. Lobelia was also smoked as a substitute for tobacco, and was reputed to share some of its magical qualities.
