This tea is said to help alleviate a harsh plemhy cough, as well as aching joints and sore muscles. Other medicinal prperties are discussed though cannot say for sure if they are indeed medicinal or just folklore.

    I live in the new Mexican desert region bro, a lot of these plants you feature on your videos are all over here and I'm so happy to learn about them. Thanks! Can you make some about roots and other medicinal plants?

    Such a beautiful plant. i visited among them many years back. Sitting with them a few weeks, seeing them in many lights, and forms and with imagination. They began to look like roots, like their foilage was through to another plane beneath our feet. hehe

    The plant can be made into a tea or a tincture for to help your lymphatic system to drain.
    If making the tincture use the blooms and bark of 3 short limbs.

    I learned from a naturopath, that ocotillo will greatly improve the circulation in your lower legs and feet. Seems like a really amazing plant 🙂
