Chief Oshkosh Hosts Natural Remedies Demo Sept 1, 2

On Sept. 1 & 2, Herbal Lodge, an authentic natural remedies company, will demonstrate Native American medicinal topical salves and teas at Chief Oshkosh Native American Arts, 7631 Hwy 42, Egg Harbor.

Owner Nathan Wright and his daughter Autumn Wright will provide information on three products available from Herbal Lodge. All products are made with natural wild harvested, organic ingredients using sustainable, traditional Native American processes.

The three products are Minagin (a topical natural pain relief salve for fibromyalgia, arthritis, joint pain, back pain, headaches and nerve damage), Nojmuk (a topical dry skin relief salve for cracked skin, eczema, psoriasis, etc.), and Chaga Thunder (a tea made from Chaga mushrooms that grow on that is high in antioxidants). All products will be available for sampling.

Wright did not have a typical American childhood. In his early years he spent most of his time helping his family at powwows as the familyā€™s tribe was revitalizing their culture in the Great Lakes region. Along the way he learned cultural teachings including making herbal medicines, birch bark baskets, beadwork, and survival skills. The Wrights are Ojibwe and members of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians.

Started in 2009, Herbal Lodge products are available at more than 250 retail locations in northeastern Wisconsin. Herbal Lodge is certified by the American Indian Intertribal Council and is authorized to use the ā€œMade by American Indiansā€ trademark on all their products. This trademark symbol lets consumers know the products they are buying are made by American Indians. For more information visit
