Lobelia flower has an affinity for the lungs. As a respiratory herbal, Lobelia is helpful for allergies, asthma, bronchitis and relieving general congestion. Lobelia also has nervine and diuretic qualities, and has been used by some as a support to wean off tobacco addiction. It's a wonderful plant with a lot of benefits, and it also needs to be respected.
Note: Lobelia is a particular strong herbal, and should be taken with care. Only a few drops at a time goes a long way. Larger amounts may cause dry mouth, vomiting, dizziness, and more serious conditions. If you have been diagnosed with heart disease, tobacco sensitivity, seizure disorder, or high blood pressure, you should not take this herb. It is also not recommended for women that are pregnant or breastfeeding.
