Get to know the plants:
Mullein: has gentle yet thorough expectorant properties, meaning it helps to purge the lungs of excess mucous, phlegm, toxins, and pollutants. It also contains mucilaginous properties, so it forms a protective coating that soothes the membranes of the mouth, digestive, and respiratory systems.
Wild Cherry Bark: antitussive action helps to suppress coughs and reduce spasming. It helps to dry up mucus (astringent properties), dilate the bronchioles for a more open airway, and also has slightly sedative properties which make it excellent for coughs that worsen during the night and affect sleep.
Elecampane: can be used as a long-term treatment for respiratory diseases like bronchitis and asthma. May also help remove hardened, infected mucous in the lungs to promote healing.
Rose hips: one of my favourite nutritive herbs! Rose hips are one of the highest herbal sources of bioavailable vitamin C and other antioxidants
Rosemary: has antispasmodic action that may help relieve a spasm-y cough, acts as a decongestant, and contains antiviral properties that may help with illness recovery
