Plantain is an anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory herb that nourishes and soothes the lining of the respiratory tract. It is great to calm irritated upper or lower respiratory conditions like mild bronchitis, sinusitis, excess catarrh and coughs.
The pungent root of elecampane is a warming decongestant, excellent for catarrh, colds, hay fever and bronchitis. It is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and it enhances immunity. It increases blood circulation to the periphery, causing sweating and helping to bring down fevers. It helps keep your lungs healthy and helps especially with irritating coughs and expelling excess mucus.
Marshmallow root is a protective, moistening, deeply soothing herb that eases respiratory inflammation and helps your body get rid of excess mucus. It’s also an excellent natural remedy for sore throats.
Echinacea is an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic herb that’s essential for stimulating and supporting your immune system. It boosts your natural defences against infection and also helps modulate an overly sensitive allergic reaction, in conditions such as hay fever and allergic asthma.
Thyme works to clear your respiratory system and sinuses with its potent antiseptic, antiviral and antibacterial properties. It’s soothing on sore throats and coughs and a must-have ingredient for easing respiratory and throat infections.
The beautifully fragrant, creamy-white flowers of the elder tree help to relax, soothe and decongest the airways. They are also antimicrobial, making them particularly useful for infections, irritation and inflammation in the respiratory tract. They are a great remedy for teary eyes and runny noses.
This product contains plantain, marshmallow root, elecampane root, echinacea root, thyme, elderflower, purified water and ethyl alcohol.
Our Tinctures are alcohol based. Using alcohol enables us to effectively extract a wide range of constituents from plants. It also means that tinctures keep well - alcohol prevents the growth of bacteria and inhibits enzyme activity. Tinctures are easy to take and to carry around with you as you only need small amounts (generally of 2-3 teaspoons per day). If you cannot or would not like to take alcohol in your medicine, please consider our herbal supplements or herbal teas within the same range and/or consult one of our medical herbalists so that they can devise a bespoke prescription for you.
