This herbal blend encourages detoxification through sweating while reducing pain. Amazingly, it helps to stay hydrated as well.
Catnip, Elder Blossoms, Echinacea, Yarrow, Peppermint
Approximately 8-10 servings per ounce
Catnip Leaves (Nepeta cataria)
Catnip is known for making cats friskier, but it has a somewhat different effect on us! It has a minty-lemony flavor that lowers the body temperature, helps dissolve excess mucous, and works to prevent inflammation.
Elder Blossoms (Sambucus nigra)
Elderberry gets most of the fame and glory. However, elder leaves and blossoms are potent 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 Leaves (Echinacea angustifolia)
Echinacea’s beautiful narrow leaves naturally support the process of eliminating cold, flu, and upper respiratory infections.
Yarrow Leaves and Flowers (Achillea millefolium)
Herbalist Matthew Wood calls yarrow a “master of fever.” It opens up pores and induces sweating, which cools the body. Yarrow helps eliminate mucus, especially from the sinuses, and because it is anti-inflammatory, it reduces swelling.
Peppermint Leaves (Mentha × piperita)
This tasty herb helps reduce fever and discomfort while boosting the immune system.
