Hi it’s Melissa and today I’m back with Melissa’s Medicinal Teas and Tinctures.
Today I am going to review Immune Boost by Harmonic Arts. I have been drinking a lot of this tea lately since I have been struggling with a cold.
This is a tea that you infuse, that is simmer for 20-30 minutes in water to unlock all the potential of the ingredients.
Echinacea Root – encourages the immune system and reduces many of the symptoms of colds and flu
Astragalus has along history of boosting the immune system and is used as an adaptogen (allowing the body to adapt to stress)
Rosehips – contain a lot of vitamin C, so they are often used in the treatment of colds and flus
Elderflowers – have antiviral properties
Elderberries – are used to boost the immune system and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections and tonsillitis
Usnea – cleanses lungs, resolves phlegm, removes toxins
Ginger – kills bacteria, there are two natural antibiotics found in ginger, helps to eliminate congestion, helps to ease throat pain, kills cold viruses, and combats chills and fever
What is your favourite tea when you are feeling like you are coming down with a cold?
What yoga pose helps you feel most nurtured?
