Osha Tincture Ingredients: Fresh osha root (Ligusticum Porteri), 85-95% ABV local organic fruit spirits (Jack Rabbit Hill), and Countryside Farm raw, unfiltered honey.
Osha root, also known as bear medicine, grows in the Rocky Mountains above 9,000 feet. The bears dig up and consume the root after hibernation to stimulate digestion and for energy. The osha root has a very distinct “spicy celery” smell and is identified by this smell and its brown, hairy roots. We make a strong extraction with fresh osha root in local organic fruit alcohol and add local organic, raw, unfiltered honey.
