Lobelia Tea - 3.5 oz. Dry Herb
SKU: SB:Lobelia Tea
Why You Need It
Lobelia is an old and controversial herb with an interesting past as a "cure-all". Dr. John Christopher, a pioneer American herbalist, used Lobelia extensively in his formulas as he valued it highly. He considered it to be a "thinking herb" as it seemed to go directly to the body part that most needed help.
Lobelia is one of the most powerful and effective expectorant herbs available, and will induce coughing to get phlegm and irritants out of the lungs to enable deeper, unobstructed breathing.
Lobelia helps to relax smooth muscles and calm the nerves and body.
Lobelia is also a diaphoretic that promotes perspiration and cools the body, while ridding it of toxins through the skin.
Lobelia has also been called Indian Tobacco, and because is in the same family of plants as real tobacco, the body cells may see it as substitute, although it doesn't have the same herbal properties.
Lobelia Concentrate uses only organic Lobelia grown in the USA. This preparation is more powerful than any you will normally find in a store.
Externally, Lobelia is often used in poultices.
Ingredient: Organic Lobelia herb.
Contains no sugar, no animal products, no GMOs and no fillers.
This tea is not powdered, but contains cut dried herbs and seeds, which benefit from an hour or so of soaking, then 10 minutes of simmering to extract the beneficial properties. The tea contains approximately 30 tablespoons.
Drink the tea with caution, as this is a very strong herb. Too much can cause vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, weakened pulse. So start with a small amount and increase only as tolerated. Best used under a healthcare practitioner's guidance.
This formula is even more effective when used in conjunction with the Lobelia Concentrate.
CAUTION: As an emetic, Lobelia will induce nausea and vomiting. This acrid herb is also said to stimulate respiration. When overused, (many times the recommended amounts), it will cause vomiting, drowsiness, weakened pulse, and respiratory distress, and great care should be exercised with its use.
