An earthy pale greenish growth, similar in appearance to an old mans beard, is a powerhouse of anti's...anti fungal, anti biotic, anti bacterial... Also useful as a natural dye in textiles.
Note: this is MEDICINAL GRADE herb, not the same as 'craft moss' or 'craft lichen' It has been wild harvested from our farms' deep woods. Usnea attracts mercury and heavy metals (like a sponge) if exposed to areas of chemical use, car exhaust, factory fumes and air pollution. Know where your herbs come from! :)
