This soft-set ointment is lubricating, antibiotic and antiseptic for use around the vaginal area. It relieves itching and irritation due to yeast or vaginal infections. Usnea sp., Laetiporus sp. Usnea, also known as old man’s beard, is not a plant but lichen — a symbiotic relationship between an algae and a fungus. The entire lichen is used. Usnea looks like long, fuzzy strings hanging from trees in North American and European forests, where it grows. This particular species of Usnea, common to our area, is medium-sized tufted shrub lichen, pale yellowish green in color. It is highly branched, bearing numerous short side branches, reinforced by a tough, white, central cord. Usnea grows over trees and shrubs, preferring old growth forest conifers in shady areas.
Usnic acid, which gives usnea its bitter taste, acts as an antibiotic.
Constituents: Usnic acid, mucilage.
Sulphur Shelf (also known as Chicken of the Woods), grows on a variety of hardwoods and softwoods throughout much of North America. The mushroom is a popular edible, and easily recognized by its color, soft texture, and absence of gills. The young rosettes and the tender edges from mature clusters are more palatable than the older, tougher specimens.
The brilliantly colored fungi produces antibiotics and has been noted to consume E. coli upon contact. The fungus is also know to speed healing of burns, both first and second degree.
Extracts of cultures of this mushroom are currently the subject of in vitro scan investigations for antibacterial properties based, in part, upon a long history of folkloric use in the Russian Far East.
Ingredients: Dried Laetiporus sulphureus mushrooms infused in olive oil and thickened with beeswax.
Constituents: N-Phenethylhexadecanamide, eburicoic acid.
1/2 oz. jar. (Melilotus officinalis & Achillea millefolium). Excellent ointment for treating pink eye, ocular rosacea, scaly patches around the eye and irritations around the eye lids and tear ducts.
Melilot is good for inflammation of the eye or other parts of the body.
The Melilots are perennial herbs, 2 to 4 feet high, found in dry fields and along roadsides, in waste places and chalky banks, especially along railway banks and near lime kilns. The smooth, erect stems are much branched, the leaves placed on alternate sides of the stems are smooth and trifoliate, the leaflets oval. The plants bear long racemes of small, sweet-scented, yellow or white, papilionaceous flowers in the yellow species, the keel of the flower much shorter than the other parts and containing much honey. They are succeeded by broad, black, one-seeded pods, transversely wrinkled.
All species of Melilot, when in flower, have a peculiar sweet odour, which by drying be comes stronger and more agreeable, somewhat like that of the Tonka bean, this similarity being accounted for by the fact that they both contain the same chemical principle, Coumarin, which is also present in new-mown hay and woodruff, which have the identical fragrance.
The name of this genus comes from the words Mel (honey) and lotus (meaning honeylotus), the plants being great favourites of the bees. Popular and local English names are Sweet Clover, King's Clover, Hart's Tree or Plaster Clover, Sweet Lucerne and Wild Laburnum.
Melilot Constituents - Coumarin, the crystalline substance developed under the drying process, is the only important constituent, together with its related compounds, hydrocoumaric (melilotic) acid, orthocoumaric acid and melilotic anhydride, or lactone, a fragrant oil.
Due to its mild astringent action, Yarrow, in hydrosol form, is very soothing to the tissue around the eye.
Yarrow, a member of the Asteraceae family, is closely related to the chamomiles. It flourishes in a sunny and warm habitat, and is frequently found in meadows and along roadsides, as well as on dry, sunny slopes. It grows as a simple, erect, and hairy stem that can reach a height of 5 feet. The entire plant (with the exception of the fruit) is draped in white, silky hairs. Yarrow grows from runners as tough, angular, horizontal stems that bear flowers.
Yarrow blooms between June and September. The flowers are typically white, but either pink or pale purple flowers are common in mountain areas. The petals are densely arranged in flattened clusters, and the leaves look like feathers.
Yarrow Constituents - A dark green, volatile oil, a peculiar principle, achillein, and achilleic acid, which is said to be identical with aconitic acid, also resin, tannin, gum and earthy ash, consisting of nitrates, phosphates and chlorides of potash and lime.
Ingredients: Calvatia booniana mushroom spore infused in olive oil and thickened with beeswax.
Constituents: 1,8-cineole (eucalyptol), artemisin, camphor, cyclobutanone, isophorone, and santonin.
This species, the state flower of Nevada, grows up to seven feet tall. It has the broadest ecological tolerance and can survive under the greatest range of environmental conditions. Tall Sagebrush has evolved a number of adaptations designed to increase the efficiency of water absorption and retention under the semi-arid conditions in which it thrives. The plants produce two types of leaves, the principal, lobed leaves persist throughout the year. Smaller, softer, non-lobed leaves appear along the branch tips in early winter and drop off during drought conditions the following summer. This allows more rapid growth during the relatively moist conditions of early spring and enables the plant to conserve resources during the hot, dry summer. Tall sagebrush also has an efficient two-component root system. Small, widely dispersed, shallow roots absorb water rapidly before it can evaporate following rainstorms. Its deep, penetrating roots draw water from reservoirs deep underground.
