For us, immunity encompasses everything. It's about living well and staying well. A healthy lifestyle is paramount to a strong immune system – and medicinal herbs can go a long way to naturally help boost immunity through sensitive and stressful times as well, particularly during the winter months. Our Immunity collection combines potent natural ingredients to soothe ailments such as coughs, colds and flus - along with products that help prevent you from falling ill and support your recovery after you do. Explore our natural immunity products below.
Elderflower is antimicrobial, relaxant and decongestant, and particularly useful to address any respiratory infections and to help loosen and expel any excess catarrh from the respiratory tract. Drinking it as a hot tea helps reduce fever and speeds up recovery from colds, fevers, flus, tonsillitis and laryngitis.
Yarrow tea stimulates blood flow to the skin and helps clear toxins, heat and congestion, by supporting elimination of toxins via the skin and the kidneys. It is excellent in a hot tea to relieve colds and clear the airways. It has an antihistamine effect (from luteolin) which can be used for allergies such as rhinitis.
Peppermint also acts as a decongestant, helping to clear the airways, and its antimicrobial actions enhance resistance to colds, flus and fevers.
Sipping a tea made with these three herbs every hour or two helps relieve aches and pains and clears catarrh.
If you are experiencing a cough, a soothing and anti-infective syrup can be helpful, such as our Cough Syrup, made with marshmallow root, liquorice and thyme.
