Usnea is a powerful antiviral, antibiotic and antifungal herb, that is actually a lichen. If you'd like to study more about usnea, or any of the other herbs in this formula you can find all but lobelia in the Herbs to Know in the Wild book. Lobelia is the "thinking herb" that tells all the other herbs what to do and where to go and delivers them to the area of distress and then helps to remove the issue and cleanse the body.
