We are currently transitioning to a new label for our single and combination extracts. You therefore may receive the label you are used to or one of our new labels. If ordering more than one extract you may receive both types of labels as we make this shift.

The oddly named usnea isn't a plant at all, but actually it is a lichen, which is a combination of algae and fungi functioning as a single organism. Usnea grows on old trees in cool, damp forests, most commonly found in the Pacific Northwest which provides most of the nation's supply. Usnea is abundant throughout most parts of the Northwest. The various species of usnea are hard to distinguish, but have equivalent uses. As such Mountain Rose Herbs cannot guarantee that each batch of usnea we offer will be of an exact single species, but rather it will consist of numerous species of the Usnea family.
