Lomatium (dissectum) Discussion:
We are told by Dr. Stephen Buhner in his book, “Herbal Antivirals” that the seed of Lomatium may contain a compound not contained in the root. This is why we have sought out the organic seed of lomatium, to mix it with the root. As far as we can tell, we are the only company offering products made with the seed of lomatium.
is a highly aromatic, medicinal herb that is considered to offer superior support for respiratory, natural antibiotic, and antiviral compounds. Its intense aroma is similar to celery and a carrot. These aroma compounds, also called phenolic compounds, may be readily available, as well as come with their own benefits. Lomatium is commonly suggested by herbalists, to be used as a steam inhalant additive. In Stephen Buhner’s book, Herbal Antivirals, he tells us that he favors this herb for those in need of chronic influenza or pneumonia support. As a featured herb in this book, there is mention of how Indians utilized lomatium root and seemingly every one of them avoided an epidemic and deadly influenza outbreak of the early century.
Studies are currently considering the massive antioxidant content of aromatic plants, such as lomatium. The actions of antioxidants may offer assistance related to free radical scavenging, chelating, and other types of transfers. Some say the phenolic compounds are like back-up metabolites of a plant that may be involved in the plant’s defense against ultraviolet radiation. This may mean that by ingesting these magical compounds, we may receive those benefits as well. It is the aromatic herbs, like lomatium, that are in the carrot family that has shown the most promising results thus far.
Studies indicate that Lomatium may be broadly active against many types of pathogens, including bacterial and fungal. Lomatium is used as a common remedy for coughs, colds, and respiratory support. An excellent root that may act as an anticoagulant, antifungal, and an immune-stimulatory herb. It’s antibacterial actions have been said to have expectorant qualities and possibly treat co-infections, like candida and molds. Some herbalists use as a powder to sprinkle into shoes as fungal foot powder or to use on a diaper, and other common rashes.
The seeds contain the highest medicinal value and most active compounds than any other parts of the plant. Most companies use the root to make their products. Although we offer a blend of the root and the seed in our products. Due to the seed’s rarity, for an added cost you may have your products made with seed only.

The variations for each product are in the order that we recommend for that specific one. This may give you an idea of which versions to get and where to start if you decide this is the route for you. There may be instances where we use an ingredient that can only come as a liquid. For example, pokeberry juice or essential oil. Only the liquid products will contain that specific ingredient and it will simply have to be left out of the powdered version. Herbal compounds may accumulate, over time. Saturation is key!
Standard Tinctures – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base, which may offer the highest absorption. When a tincture sets under the tongue, the microscopic, pre-extracted compounds are readily bioavailable and they absorb through the tissue, similar to plant intake in nature! Alcohol may carry them into the bloodstream, where they may then may circulate to the organs. For this particular blend, we recommend a tincture.
Lipospheric Tinctures – Standard tinctures are put through an energetic process to collide the herbal compounds and encase them in oxygenated bubbles. This method is an oxygenation process, which completely changes the color of the solution. This version of a tincture may always off the highest absorption.
Capsules – Size 00, vegetable capsules. Our capsules are handmade, to order.
Herbal Tea – Each teabag can be brewed up to three times, resulting in three cups of tea, each. Generally, this means that you may get 60-75 cups of tea per 6 oz. order! Each label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts used in the tea. If you wish to have loose herb, rather than bagged as it comes, simply leave a note specifying so, while completing your order.
Glycerites – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This may be ideal for those most sensitive and especially children.
Tinctures are animal & child-safe, at the appropriate dosage. They can be used as an additive to personal products like lotion, detox bath, nebulizing, topically, and even as belly button soaks. Best results may come with working up to the highest dose, staying consistent.
We always choose unprocessed, ethically wildcrafted plant material, when possible. We also add freshly harvested, green plant material, wherever we can! This allows for a rare and unique availability of enzymes. Normally these enzymes are lost in the drying process and as far as we know, we are unique to us. Many companies that make simple elixirs don’t even know how to do it properly!
When we purchase herbs, we choose whole plant material, for us to grind into a silky fine powder, as we need it. This ensures quality, freshness, and abundant compounds. “Full-spectrum” means that the product contains every part of the plant, including the roots, and wherever we can, we even add the seed, flower, and/or fruit!
We have had our products energetically tested by an energetic practitioner, using a bioresonance scanning system that is well-known. She reported back that our products were over 300% more energetic than any others in her system! Over the years customers have continued to energetically test our products with their own body and they have passed every test they have ever been put through. Some say they have even surpassed the major brands!
Always use herbals wisely and with common sense!
