About: We have seen this unusual lichen, also known as “Old Man’s Beard” hanging in long tendrils of grayish-green on the branches of tall evergreens that stand on the rocky shore facing the North Atlantic. This is but one place where Usnea grows. It is said that where Usnea lichen grows, the air is especially clean and clear. We prepare our Usnea extract from various species of Usnea lichens which have been sustainably wild crafted in their native habitat.

Recommended Dosage: 30-60 drops, 3 times per day in juice or water. *Please note our recommended dosage may differ from other sources.
