Product Description

Lobelia is a small, low-growing plant in the bellflower family that produces vibrant purple-blue flowers. The aerial parts of the plant are traditionally used to combat inflammation of the skin and respiratory disorders. The herb is also a component of herbal smoking blends, as indicated by the common names Indian tobacco and asthma weed. Interestingly though, Lobelia is often a main ingredient in natural anti-smoking formulas to help curb the desire for nicotine and to calm the nerves.

Lobelia is a powerful respiratory tonic that relaxes air passages for clearer breathing. The herbal antispasmodic also relaxes tight muscles and eases minor joint & muscle discomforts.

Internal use of lobelia is risky, however, as indicated by other common names including pukeweed, emetic herb and gagweed. Although the herb is not considered poisonous per se, it does exert potent emetic effects due to the presence of the alkaloid lobeline.

Flavor: Bitter and acrid due to the presence of carboxylic acids and piperidine alkaloids. Not recommended for culinary use.

Topical Use: Infuse in oil or make strong water infusions for use in salves, lotions and other topical formulations. The herb may also be tinctured for external use.

Safety: Take only as prescribed by a physical or health care provider. Eating too much of this herb may be toxic and even fatal. Do not eat the fresh plant.

Storage: Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark location.
