The first official product of BlackBird‘s Botanica,
Brave’s Brewed Manglier Tea
My Grandmother says,
“When someone gets a fever, give him some tea made with manglier. Serve it in a coffee cup three times per day.”
Native Americans first discovered the medicinal properties of this plant in the 1800’s. Creole and Cajun communities used it before the onset of drug prescriptions and antibiotics. The active ingredient in Manglier is Baccharis Oxide. Baccharis Oxide is a Triterpenoid. Baccharis oxide (the active ingredient in Manglier ) is a very powerful triterpenoid (highly multifunctional compound) with very strong antiviral capabilities. Triterpenes have been described as anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antimicrobial, and antitumoral agents, as well as being immunomodulator compounds.
Manglier is the hidden jewel of the medicinal plant collection. Little seems to be known about it outside of Louisiana, but it is well known by our Native American, Cajun and Creole communities as an excellent remedy for fevers, chills, congestion, and other cold or pneumonia type symptoms. The leaves of the plant are boiled to make an aromatic yellow/green brew. Because of its strong, bitter taste, it is traditionally served with honey and lemon, a cough drop, or some whiskey to cut the flavor. Whole branches and leaves can be dried and stored for later use. The tea can be made several times using the same leaves.
A palliative and demulcent in consumption and cough. Something like the most 𝘱𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘳𝘧𝘶𝘭 Tylenol. As 𝘴𝘰𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 as the brown cough drops🌿.
