This month we’ll dive into the medicinal uses of this beautiful purple blooming plant and how she was used traditionally by the Native Americans versus how traditional herbalists use her today. Though the parts used are different, the results are just as powerful, if not more so with the more modern tradition of using New England Aster.
You’ll learn to identify NEA from other asters, when to harvest this autumn beauty and how to capture the constituents for treating a variety of illnesses including bronchitis, asthma, allergies, fevers with sore throats, fevers as well as poison ivy.
