Mullein (Verbascum thapsus): Mullein has been used for thousands of years to treat respiratory conditions. It helps open the lungs, eases spasms, tightness, and cough, and soothes irritation and dryness.
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.
Marshmallow leaf and flowers (Althea officinalis): Marshmallow is full of gooey mucilage that is great for healing irritated mucosa. This herb has been used for centuries to treat inflammation of the urinary tract and respiratory system. Its demulcent properties and pleasant flavour make it an excellent choice in this tea.
Kanuka (Kunzea ericoides): A "tea-tree" similar to Manuka, traditionally used to make a herbal tea, grows well on KoruKai Herb Farm. We love it for its antimicrobial and antifungal properties. It supports the body to fight off infections and is a great addition to this tea.
Licorice root (Glycorrhiza glabra): Licorice was taken by ancient Greece for asthma and chest problems. It is very soothing for the respiratory tract and is useful to treat bacterial and viral infections.
Plantain (plantago lanceolata and major): Plantain has a long history of use for relieving coughs. It is a soothing herb that has been shown to help people with chronic bronchitis.
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris): With essential oils to fight bacterial and viral infections, Thyme is classified as a natural antibiotic to help build immunity. Effective at relieving wet and dry coughs, as well as asthma. Its expectorant action helps clear the air passage of excess saliva and mucous, resulting in a productive cough.
