Collection: Osha Root

Osha root is also known as loveageloveroot or bear medicine because bears, after chewing it for health reasons, are side-affected by its “lovage” properties and take to nuzzling each other. This perennial herb — Ligusticum porteri, known as osha or osha — is found in parts of the Rocky Mountains and northern Mexico.


member of the parsley family, Osha’s seeds and leaves were food to indigenous Americans. It also served as a symbol for different beliefs: some communities burned Osha as a sacrifice for protection against dangerous spirits and omens; others washed it in waterways near vegetation during rituals for producing rain.

As with all our other products, our Osha Root products are handmade and sourced locally.
