Grab a yerba mansa leaf, chew it up and swallow it. Allow the natural medicine to calm your nerves naturally. This is the Yin part of the medicine. The Root of the plant is the Yang. So if you are having an upset stomach, you will simply eat a part of the root, just a small piece.  Google it and find valuable info online!

Yerba Mansa grows in alkaline wetlands of Arizona, California & New Mexico.  Its family, the Saururaceae, has only one other member Saururus cernuus or “Lizard’s Tail” which grows in the Eastern and Midwestern wetlands of the United States.  You can grow this plant anywhere where there is moist soil.   Anemopsis californica produces long runners bearing new leaves and roots.  A single plant can quickly spread to form a fragrant, leafy carpet. Extremely hard to kill. excellent for beginner or advanced pond owners.
