Wild foraged from the grounds of St. Joseph Homestead.
Manglier is a shrub you'll find in overgrown pastures and at the edges of woods. It's also called Groundsel Bush.
The cajuns used to make a tea from the leaves for healing just about anything, but especially respiratory illness.
Bring 18 oz of water to a boil. Add about 1/4 cup of whole dried leaves. Simmer for 10 minutes. You can also add turmeric, ginger, cayenne pepper, fresh orange juice, and/or fresh lemon juice to taste. Strain into a pitcher. Pour 6 oz into a tea cup and sweeten with honey. The flavor is quite bitter, but the extra ingredients help.
Drink 6 oz three times a day.
