Usnea stimulates the immune system, and can be of great use in treating skin infections, abscesses, upper respiratory and lung infections, vaginal infections, UTIs, and fungal infections. Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine use it to treat cough due to hot phlegm, conjunctivitis, headache, carbuncle, and lymph node tuberculosis. Usnea is anti-inflammatory and analgesic- the powder makes an invaluable wound healer!
