Since in e   l mount cordovan   we find an abundant variety of   herbs of all kinds   with differentiated uses. The ones that enable us to use them for thousands of issues. From medicinal uses to homemade tricks that connect us with nature.   This wise nature, with cordovan tonada,   It has a lot of secrets that we're going to figure out now. These elements that the Earth gives us were used by historical civilizations that today make up   our cultural imaginary.   For example, the Comechingones, who stayed in Mount Cordovan and used these herbs daily.

Today we realize that, almost as if we were connected with our ancestors,   we keep killing it “yuyiao”   . They tell some versions about the history of mate that it is native to the native peoples of the   jungle region of the northwest of our country.   And that, at first, was judged by the colonizers as   “unhygienic.”   But that, unintentionally, was taking a   special place   among the customs of the colonial people. So it spread throughout the entire territory, and today there is no province in Argentina where there is no   it sucks matte.  

The Tales Group in Boca, after a   thorough research,   managed to collect the various uses of   the healing yuyos of Mount Cordovan.   Whether for infusions or to add to the mate and give a touch of Cordovan.
