What's in it?

Organic Peppermint

Peppermint is widely used to treat symptoms of the common cold. Peppermint contains the substance rosmarinic acid, which has been shown to block the production of pro-inflammatory chemicals. It also encourages cells to make substances called prostacyclins that keep the airways open for easy breathing.

Echinacea

Endemic to Eastern and Central North America, Echinacea was not used exclusively for the treatment of colds by the indigenous Indians. The Kiowa and Cheyenne used it for sore throats, the Pawnee for headaches, whilst the Lakota found it to be an excellent painkiller – all of these symptoms being prevalent in the common cold.

Organic Elderflower

Elderflowers are particularly rich in flavonoids, especially anthocyanins which work to keep the immune system strong and resilient. They’re also believed to contain potent antiviral agents.

Organic Yarrow

Used as a medicinal herb for thousands of years, Yarrow has a long history of use in the traditional medicine systems of many ancient cultures. In fact it is so ancient that it was found amongst other medicinal herbs at a Neanderthal burial site in Iraq, dating from around 60,000 BCE.

Organic Hyssop

Hyssop is used to help combat the onset of the common cold. It's an expectorant therefore aiding in relieving coughs and chest infections. It can also help maintain your bodies’ natural defences against such illnesses.

Organic Marigold

The main compounds within Marigold are the triterpenoids, which are claimed to be the most important anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous (preventing swelling) components within the plant. Due to its anti-microbial and antiseptic qualities, Marigold is also an effective remedy for sore throats.

Tea time

Infuse 1 or 2 heaped teaspoons in water heated at 90°c, for 4-6 minutes.

Whole leaves take longer to infuse but it is definitively worth it!

Tips

For best results, drink 3-4 times a day until symptoms have disappeared (usually within 3-4 days).

Crush or grind the herbs prior to use.

Make sure that all ingredients are well mixed. Lighter particles and powders tend to sink at the bottom of the packet.

Do not leave herbs to steep in water as this may result in a slightly bitter infusion.
