Aristeguietia gayanum, or asmachilca, is a bush that grows up to 1 meter in height. It grows in the west-facing mountainsides and interandean valleys between 3600–4000 meters in altitude. Asmachilca is only found in Peru. It was traditionally used by the Incas for respiratory system complaints.[citation needed] Today, it is used in cooking, but tea is the most common preparation.
