Approximately 8-10 servings per ounce.
Catnip (Nepeta cataria)
Catnip is known for making cats friskier, but it has a somewhat different effect on us! It is a nervine with a cool, minty-lemony flavor that lowers body temperature, helps dissolve excess mucous, and works to prevent inflammation.
Elder (Sambucus nigra)
Elderberry gets most of the fame and glory, however the leaves and blossoms of the elder plant are powerful and stand on their own. When taken in a warm tea, elder blossoms help open the capillaries and eliminate excess heat from the body.
Echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia)
Echinacea’s beautiful narrow leaves naturally support the process of eliminating cold, flu and upper respiratory infections.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
Herbalist Matthew Wood calls yarrow a “master of fever.” It opens up pores and induces sweating, which activates the cooling process in the body. Yarrow helps get rid of mucus, especially from the sinuses, and because it is anti-inflammatory, it reduces swelling.
Peppermint (Mentha × piperita)
This tasty herb helps reduce fever and discomfort, while boosting the immune system.
