Usnea: when taken internally, this lichen helps to rid the body of lung and bladder infection, it balances bacteria by eliminating gram positive bacteria specifically, and makes for a nutritious tea or food. Externally it can be used as an anti-microbial, including as a wound compress in emergency situations.

Lemon balm: is beneficial in calming nerve tissue, is a mild antidepressant, carminative, sedative, and is anti-bacterial, used to treat colds, migraines, eczema, and insomnia. A clinical study focused on dementia showed that the essential oil reduced patient agitation by 35%. It has also found to be helpful in reducing bad dreams or night terrors. Melissa has been cultivated for thousands of years and was a favorite herb of the Islamic alchemists, and the well known Muslim herbalist Avicenna used lemon balm to treat heart problems. Lemon balm is medically approved in supporting calm and healthy sleep, supporting the gastrointestinal tract, and has been shown to increase memory and cognitive function.
