'Colorado Cough Root'
'Porter's Wild Lovage'
Osha Root resists cultivation: it is therefore ideal for work involving resistance to domestication and conformity, a wonderful talisman to take to a protest. It's folk name "Bear Medicine" gives it in association with awakening, since bears hunger for it after hibernation. Call on the spirit of the Osha Root to help you awaken from somnambulistic tendencies such as dull perceptions and unconscious habits. The deva of this plant is also said to encourage hunger.
