The herbs: dry leaves of mullein and thyme. licorice roots and fresh ginger. place all the ingredients in a teapot or mason jar, add 1 Quart of boiling-hot water, cover, and steep for 15 to 20 minutes (this process is called an infusion), then strain. Drink the whole quart over the course of a day. You can prepare this tea the night before, and let it steep all night if you’d like, but I have found that teas for colds and flus work better if you drink them hot.
Can be sweetened with honey.
Note: if using steroids, exclude the licorice roots.
This blend of herbs can help boost the functioning of the lungs: eases breathing, prevents painfull coughing and promotes restful sleep at night.
