Handblended a kiddy immune booster tea for love bug. 💞 I literally have up to 40 herbs in my home apothecary. Growing it daily!
Some of the ingredients to my tea: Peppermint: Peppermint has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this, peppermint tea may fight clogged sinuses due to infections, the common cold and allergies (research shows)
Additionally, research demonstrates that menthol — one of the active compounds in peppermint — improves the perception of airflow in your nasal cavity. Therefore, steam from peppermint tea may help you feel as though your breathing is easier.
Citrus: citrus delivers a healthy dose of vitamin C (51 mg in an orange, 38 mg in a grapefruit, and 30 mg in a lemon). ... Studies show that the vitamin could help shorten the duration of your (cold) symptoms by about a day—which can make a big difference when you're feeling unwell.
One key ingredients in the berries is the antioxidants. Loaded with those antioxidants, elderberries offers help to the immune system. The syrups and extracts from the elderberry also have shown an ability to shorten time spent sick with the cold or flu.
Hibiscus: loaded with antioxidants, hibiscus is also rich in vitamin C and iron. Both properties help the immune system stay balanced and fight bacteria, helping you ditch a cold or flu more quickly.
