Blended in house with wild crafted goldenrod leaf (Solidago altissima L.) , wild crafted stinging nettle leaf ( L. Urtica dioica), our garden peppermint ( Mentha × piperita ) and Japanese sencha green tea (Camellia sinensis).
This is a custom blend of some of the most important organic herbs to support local allergies and especially when used with our local honey in a warm temperature herbal tea.
Goldenrod leaf is a decongestant, effectively alleviating upper respiratory congestion from allergies, sinusitis, flu, or the common cold.
Histamine is a compound that triggers the body's immune response to an allergen. The stinging nettle appears to block histamine from reaching receptors on tissue, reducing the severity of symptoms.
Peppermint tea can also be used as a treatment for allergies as it acts as an anti-inflammatory and decongestant.
Japanese researchers found that EGCG, the abundant antioxidant compound in green tea, may help stop your body from mounting an immune response to a wide range of allergens, including pollen, pet dander, and dust. The presence of polyphenols in green tea has also shown to be a wonder for the skin, as they can protect against damaging UV rays, which are linked to wrinkles, skin cancers, and dark spots. Green tea has also shown to be anti-inflammatory, which helps keep your skin clear and glowing.
When preparing, steep1 Tbs of the herbs in 1 cup water while covered, for 8 to 10 minutes and then strain. This amount is a strong brew for severe allergies. A 1 tsp portion per cup is excellent as a preventative, if allergies are not to severe.
Each packet contains 10 full tablespoons.
