Golden Rod (Solidago virgaurea): The aerial parts of goldenrod have been identified as having many beneficial properties including as an anticatarrhal, an herb which helps the body remove excess mucus. Goldenrod also contains high levels of the anti-inflammatory constituent quercitin, which, along with its astringent action, can help alleviate the symptoms of allergies.

Nettle (Urtica dioica):
Stinging nettle has a long medicinal history. It has been used for hundreds of years to treat painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, anemia, urinary tract infections and hay fever.

Elderflowers (Sambucus nigra)
: One of the elderflower’s properties is its role to relieve the inflammatory nature of allergic reactions, soothing and toning mucus membranes in the nose and throat. From an ayurvedic perspective, its actions also dispense the accumulation that takes place in the respiratory system by eliminating toxins from the blood.

Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis):
 Research has confirmed that hyssop is soothing to mucous membranes. It is a good expectorant and antiviral herb commonly used to treat respiratory conditions such as influenza, sinus infections, colds, asthma and bronchitis. It is essential for anyone who deals with respiratory issues, breathing difficulties, allergies, and recurring lung issues.

Plantain (Plantago lanceolata):
 Nature’s own antibiotic, traditionally used to treat colds, coughs, fevers and sinusitis.  It helps to expel phlegm and soothe inflamed and painful mucous membranes in the nose, throat, bronchi and lungs. Plantain is particularly useful to treat wheezing and asthma.

Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis): Marshmallow has antibacterial and anti-allergy properties. It is high in mucilage and is helpful for symptomatic relief of coughs and irritated throats.

Liquorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra)
: Liquorice means "sweet root" and sweet it is. It gives the tea a beautiful sweetness and because of its mild antihistaminic effect, it is believed to help alleviate hay fever symptoms, allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma and allergic conjunctivitis.

Lemon Verbena (Aloysia citrodora): Research has connected lemon verbena with lowered oxidative stress levels and better overall health of the body, evidence by a decisive increase in white blood cells, the first line of defense for our immune system. Lemon Verbena reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system, calms the stomach, reduces fevers and clear up congestion. A powerful herb and a delight to drink.

Calms and supports

I have been symptom free for a week now!

I'm a sheep and beef farmer on Banks Peninsula and have suffered from airborne allergies all my life, especially in Spring and Summer months due to increased pollen, grasses and dust. I recently approached Cornelia asking if she could suggest any remedies for relieving my hayfever allergy symptoms. She suggested I try her hayfever tea. Within the first day of drinking the tea I had no hayfever, even while working in dusty sheep yards where I would usually be sneezing all day. I have been symptom free for a week now. I am really pleased with the hayfever tea and would encourage any other hayfever allergy sufferers to try it.
