Eriodictyon californicum

Yerba Santa is a traditional medicine from the desert southwest of North America. It has primarily been used to address conditions associated with the sinuses, the lungs, breathing, or coughing. It is useful in cases where the lungs are not regularly taking in adequate oxygen. Its aromatic scent helps to induce deeper breathing, and open the chest. It has also been used to *reduce infections, both upper respiratory infections and urinary tract infections.

In Chinese traditions, it is applied to phlegm damp conditions with sinus congestion. It may also prevent the development of hay fever, sinusitis, or rhinitis, when used preventively. Other uses include increasing appetite, reducing indigestion, and soothing inflammatory skin conditions such as with poison oak rashes or eczema or psoriasis.
