Oregon Grape Root Tea

The Oregon grape root (Latin name Mahonia aquifolium) comes from a shrub native to the Pacific Northwest regions, from British Columbia and all the way to northern California. It’s been traditionally used to treat digestive issues and to detoxify the liver and kidneys. However, recent studies have shown that this tea is also beneficial at treating skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne.

Matcha Tea
