Nettles (Urtica dioica)
Once used in Europe to create fine cloths and paper, nettles are weeds that you likely see every day without knowing a treasure is in front of you. While it produces a stinging sensation, it is an impressive allergy fighter. Nettles has one of the highest levels of chlorophyll among plants. It is nutrient rich, packed with Vitamins A, B2, C and K and has calcium, iron and potassium. Its high iron content combats lethargy and anemia.
Mullein (Verbascum thapsus)
Mullein's uses have varied over time, most notably in Native American culture. The Cherokee used it for rashes, Creek Indians drank its roots for coughs, and other tribes smoked the roots or dried leaves to treat asthma. For all of these reasons, mullein is favored by herbalists as a remedy for respiratory disorders including seasonal allergies, asthma, and coughs.
Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus)
This is one of our favorite herbs! It builds resistance to weakness and stress and is a great tonic for the lungs, kidneys, spleen and blood, while balancing the energy of all internal organs. The collective benefits increase energy, making it an extraordinary herb for most conditions.
Plantain (Plantago major)
Quite different from edible plantains that many of us grew up eating, the herb plantain is a garden weed and silent powerhouse. It has bioactive compounds that balance the histamine response, making it great for allergies. Plantain is used for symptoms such as runny nose, itchy and runny eyes and sneezing. It has many other benefits, including having anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, analgesic (pain relieving) and vulnerary (wound healing) properties.
Orange Peel (Citrus sinensis)
Orange Peel is a stimulant, which increases the action of all herbs in the formula, and it’s great for eliminating mucus.
Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana)
Known as candy leaf, honey leaf and sweet leaf, the stevia plant is native to South America and has been used by the Guarani Indians for centuries. It tastes 200-300 times sweeter than sugar, without the calories of refined sugar. Its sweet taste makes it ideal for people with diabetes. Stevia is also used for heartburn, gingivitis, osteoporosis and high blood pressure.
