Bear Root- Osha42$ US – 85$ US
We are very excited to be able to offer Bear Root. One of the most important Native traditional medicines.
Bear Root or Osha Root is traditionally used in herbal medicine to treat symptoms of respiratory illnesses such as the common cold and bronchitis. Osha Root is also known to have antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Traditionally, Osha is taken as a tea, or eaten raw, or sometimes used as a smudge. Osha is also VERY popular among Powwow singers cuz nothing soothes an over worked throat after a weekend singing better than Osha. Singers will bite off a bit of root and stick it up under your lip and then just sucking/chewing on it will seriously ease a soar throat. Our Osha is Native harvested in the Rocky Mountains.

Mayan Copal30$ US – 101$ US
Copal Maya “Pom”
Copal is a tree resin from the Protium Copal Tree. The word copal comes from the Nahuatl language (copalli = incense) Our Mayan Pom Copal is Indigenous harvested in Yajalon, Chiapas Mexico. It has a woody/evergreen odour that creates a distinctive holiday vibe. You can burn our copal by putting a small piece of lit wood coal in a shell and place a pinch of copal on the red coal. Or you can also just light a small piece of copal with a lighter. The resin will catch fire….and you can blow it out…and a light smoke will share the blessing.
Copal is also used in ceremonies, it is burned as a medicine for cleansing energies, the home, crystals and oneself. The medicine of copal helps oneself to release/relax and open the mind and body. This copal came to us in form of a trade.
