Osha root is a herb native to the Rocky Mountain area and has historically been used by the Native Americans for respiratory support. The roots of the Ligusticum Porteri contain camphor and other compounds which make it one of the best lung-support herbs in America. One of the main benefits of Osha root is that it helps increase circulation to the lungs, which makes it easier to take deep breaths.
