Growing up in the swamp, I learned from the Woman. She helped me to understand the benefits of different herbal teas.
Info about Allie: I inherited special gifts from Blue Eyes, who was not of our world. He came through a portal. He wanted to keep a watchful eye over my training with the Woman, but that did not happen. He was of an advanced alien race. The Light Dwellers from another realm.
Native Americans introduced the settlers to this New World herb. Its name reflects its use during a particularly harsh strain of flu called break bone fever. Come cold and flu season, boneset can be invaluable in relieving coughs and upper-respiratory congestion, helping to loosen up phlegm, and clearing nasal passages. It also can be used to help reduce a fever. This versatile herb has a calming effect on the body and can relieve constipation.
