Herbal Nerd Society member exclusive: Yerba Santa for Asthma with Christina Sanchez

Asthma is an increasingly common respiratory condition in Western culture. Herbalist and desert eco-system defender, Christina Sanchez, walks us through techniques that utilize a potent anti-asthmatic herb Yerba Santa (Eriodictyon californicum). Christina goes through Yerba Santa’s properties and the variety of ways to incorporate it into daily life. She also discusses other herbs and blends that can be used either in conjunction with Yerba Santa or on their own to help keep the air in our lungs flowing freely.
