This Wild Bergamot was hand picked in the Black Hills Of South Dakota. Due to the presence of a high thymol content which is a strong antiseptic, Wild Bergamot has been used in infusion form for a variety of ailments in its long past: colds, flu, upper respiratory problems, gas, diarrhea, nausea, fevers and whooping cough, and topically for skin problems and wounds.The boiled leaves were historically wrapped in cloth for sore eyes, headaches, muscle spasms, fungal infections, and under bandages to slow bleeding. The leaves were chewed on battlefields and used for this purpose. This was also used to treat acne, and other skin infections...a natural antibacterial medicine for the skin.
