About Yerba Mansa Root
Yerba mansa is versatile, it can be taken orally as a tea, tincture, infusion or dried in capsule form. It can be used externally for soaking inflamed or infected areas. It can be ground and used as a dusting powder. Some people in Las Cruces, NM use the leaves to make a poultice to relieve muscle swelling and inflammation.
An infusion of roots can be taken as a diuretic to treat rheumatic diseases like gout by ridding the body of excess uric acid, which causes painful inflammation of the joints. Yerba mansa prevents the buildup of uric acid crystals in the kidneys which could causes kidney stones if left untreated. Yerba mansa's general antiinflammatory effect makes it excellent for treating arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.
About Jack-in-the-Pulpit Root
Jack-in-the-Pulpit root is used in alternative medicine and is edible (only after drying and cooking), it is acrid, antiseptic, diaphoretic, expectorant, irritant and stimulant. A medicinal poultice of root used for headaches and various skin diseases. Ointment used for ringworm, tetterworm and abscess. The fresh root contains high concentrations of calcium oxalate and is considered to be too dangerous and intensely acrid to use. Roasting the root after drying it 6 months removes the acridity. In this way Native Americans peeled and ground the roots to powder to make a bread, which has a flavor similar to chocolate. The roots can be cut into very thin slices and allowed to dry for several months, after which they are eaten like potato chips, crumbled to make a cereal or ground into a cocoa-flavored powder for making biscuits and cakes. A starch obtained from the roots is used as a stiffener for clothes.

Research and Development In Their Retail Store
Herbs, Etc. operates a retail store in Santa Fe, New Mexico, selling bulk herbs, herbal remedies, vitamins, supplements and essential oils. The store’s primary mission is to offer herbal medicine information and remedies to the Santa Fe community. It is also a research and development center. Many of Herbs, Etc.’s herbal medicines are created and tested here.
The retail store offers over 250 varieties of bulk liquid herbal extracts. From these, products that are specific to clients’ health needs are custom-formulated. For example, their best selling herbal throat spray was created while working with performers at the famed Santa Fe Opera. Singers would come to the store complaining of sore throats. Many formulations were tested, however, one formula was requested more often than all the others. This formulation became known as Singer’s Saving Grace®. Today, this product is available in four classic formulas (Extra Strength, Cool Mint, Honey Lemon and Serious Cinnamon) and 2 alcohol-free formulas (Professional Strength and Citrus & Honey).
From the field to the plant
Once a formulation has been tested and approved, the manufacturing process begins. At Herbs, Etc.’s certified organic manufacturing facility each herbal medicine product starts with fresh or dried whole herbs. The herbs we purchase are grown on family-owned, certified organic farms. They are grown throughout the United States in the climate and ecosystems in which they thrive.
Herbs, Flowers, Leaves, Buds: When Fresh is Best
Some herb parts, such as flowers, leaves and buds, must be processed while fresh (undried) to retain their full medicinal qualities. This critical step ensures that the essential oils and other fragile constituents are not lost, evaporated or destroyed in the drying process. Fresh herbs are picked from the field and shipped overnight in refrigerated containers. We receive them while fresh the very next morning. Once released from quality control, the herbs are immediately ground to break the cell walls, put in an alcohol/water solution and extracted while fresh and vibrant. This process allows the release of active constituents.
